  1. Put the cauliflower and potatoes into large stockpot. Cover with cold water and place over high heat until water comes to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a healthy simmer and cook until vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.
  2. Once tender, drain all water from the vegetables and place into the Cuisinart® mixing bowl. Attach the whisk and mix on Speed 5 until vegetables are smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl as necessary during the process. Increase the speed between 8 and 10 to completely whip until smooth.
  3. Once smooth, reduce speed to add the olive oil, salt and pepper and then slowly turn up to Speed 12 until light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl once to make sure all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly.
