Cauliflower is a cruciferous veggie, low in carbs and very high in Vitamin C and manganese which provides your body with loads of antioxidants to combat the oxidative stress on our cells. It is also fully loaded with12 grams of fiber per 100 calorie serving, and a great option for digestive system support.  If you would like to read about more amazing health benefits of Cauliflower - please check out WH Foods.

Simple Cauliflower Mash

  • 1 Head Cauliflower
  • 1-1 1/2  Cups Homemade Beef Bone Broth (You can use any time of broth or water. I find it is more flavorful with broth instead of water.)
  • 1-2 tsp Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves - Minced 
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 1tsp Coconut Oil
Utensils Needed:
  • Stock Pot w/ Lid
  • Frying Pan
  • Measuring Spoon & Cups
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Immersion Hand Blender or Fork
  • Rinse and chop Cauliflower into large sections 
  • Pour 1 cup of Broth into pan, place cauliflower into pan w/ the minced fresh garlic - Cover and Steam on Low for 20 min.
  • While the cauliflower is steaming - saute your finely diced onion in a little coconut oil. 
  • Once the Cauliflower is ready pour your sauteed onions into the mixture.  
  • If the Cauliflower seems a little dry add a little additional broth - just enough to help make the mash.
  • Grab your immersion blender and mash everything together.  A fork can be used as well if you don't have an immersion blender.
  • Lastly Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste and stir in your olive oil.
  • Serve & ENJOY!

  1. Chrissy, Thanks for the Cauliflower Mash recipe..just what I was looking for to go with the Meatloaf I am making from Everyday Paleo for tonight's dinner. For breakfast I made a Paleo Frittata (eggs, bacon, spinach, red bell pepper, green onions, oregano) which the kids loved! For snack I made us a Paleo fruit smoothie with Banana, frozen blueberries, a peach and coconut milk! Yum! I am on a roll. Thanks for the encouragement! -graham
