Paleo Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

I recently got a Vitamix, so I guess you can say I’ve been going crazy on Pinterest recipes. First of all, for anyone who says a Vitamix isn’t worth the money, I strongly disagree! I am obsessed with mine and can’t believe I ever lived without it. I know they are pricey {$528.00}, however if you think about how much you can do with it, it’s totally worth it.

With that being said, I had to share tonight’s Pinterest creation- Paleo Garlic Mashed Cauliflower. If you already eat Paleo, then this idea is nothing new, but this was my first time making it and it was so delicious and so easy, I had to pass on the tip.

Paleo Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Paleo Garlic Mashed Cauliflower-

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Sea salt & Pepper to taste, optional

Directions:

  1. Add water to the bottom of a double pot and place over medium-high heat, cover and bring to a boil.
  2. Cut the head of cauliflower in half and remove the stem. Chop cauliflower into small pieces and add to the steamer basket (for me that is the top portion of the double pot). Alternatively, if you don’t have a double pot and steamer basket you can add the cauliflower to a large pot, cover with water and bring to a boil.
  3. Steam cauliflower for 15-20 minutes, or until soft.
  4. Add the cauliflower from the pot to a food processor. NOTE: Be sure to use oven mitts to hold the steamer basket and be careful of the steam while pouring into the food processor.
  5. Process for a few seconds to chop then add butter, garlic and a pinch of sea salt (if you’d like).
  6. Process until smooth and well combined.
  7. There is no need to cook further, the mash will be hot and ready to serve. Simply transfer the mash over to a bowl, serve and enjoy! 🙂

WARNING: This is garlic cauliflower mash and I love garlic so if you’re not as big a fan or you haven’t built up your garlic tolerance yet, you may want to add 1 clove or just use garlic powder instead.

I used the instructions from Paleo Porn.
