1. Put the cauliflower and potatoes in a medium to large stockpot. Add cold water to cover cauliflower and potatoes by 2 inches. Set over medium-high heat to bring to a boil, and then reduce to simmer until the vegetables are very soft, about 25 minutes, depending on the stovetop and cookware being used.
2. Once tender, drain the water, return to the pot and set over medium-low heat. Continue to cook until all water has evaporated. Mix on Speeds 2 to 3 to mash. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on Speed 2 until fully incorporated.
3. Taste and adjust seasoning according to preference.
