Cauliflower Mash Recipe

These Low-Carb Mashed "Potatoes" Are Dreamy and Easy to Make

Lighten up your standard mashed potato side with this Paleo-friendly twist on tradition: creamy mashed cauliflower. Since the cauliflower has a much quicker cook time than potatoes, this whole recipe comes together in 20 minutes! This decadent-tasting dish has that texture you're craving, reminiscent of the classic, while the baked-potato toppings like scallions and diced bacon make the dish even more delicious.

This high-fiber, low-carb side dish serves a home on your Thanksgiving table.

Notes

This dish easily reheats, so feel free to cook a day in advance. I used 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper for flavor.

Cauliflower Mash Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 large heads cauliflower, cut into florets
  2. 1 slice free-range bacon, diced
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons ghee, brought to room temperature, or grass-fed butter
  4. Salt and pepper, to taste
  5. 1 scallion, sliced thin

Directions

  1. Place large pot or skillet with a fitted cover on your stove top, add 1 to 2 inches of water (depending on the size of your pot), and set to medium-high heat. Place the cauliflower florets into a steamer basket, and lower into pot, making sure the water isn't covering the vegetables. Cover and cook until very tender (about 10 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, cook diced bacon on medium-high heat until crispy. Set aside on paper towels.
  3. Once the cauliflower is easily pierced with a fork, remove hot florets from steamer, and place in a food processor.
  4. Add ghee or butter to the food processor, and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove it from the food processor and place in a serving dish.
  5. Sprinkle diced bacon and scallions on top, and enjoy hot.
