Quick and Creamy Cauliflower Mash (Paleo, Vegan, Gluten Free, Whole 30)

I cant even begin to tell you how burnt out I am from my dietetic internship and masters program. The 8 hour days PLUS an additional 3-4 hours of homework, exams, etc. is really sucking the life out of me.

And even though I have the weekends to get ahead of my work, I end up doing the bare minimum so that I can do more important things like go to salt caves, farmers markets, coffee shops and 50% off sales at 5:00AM.

But seriously..

My sister, Candyce and I woke up at 5:00AM on Sunday to go a big half off sale at a boutique called Ooh La La.

Mind you, my internship is completely unpaid. But someone at the Gap thought it was a good idea to approve me for a Visa….

Anyways, I originally wanted to do a more elaborate recipe, but for lack of time I decided to go with a basic cauliflower mash. Sometimes it’s difficult to find such a simple and quick recipe so I think this worked out for the best. I whipped this side up in minutes and my family found it creamy and delicious. Feel free to add in chives, rosemary, thyme, cheese, or whatever other mixings you desire.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower (you may also use the frozen cauliflower)
  • 1 cup less sodium chicken broth (or bone broth or vegetable broth)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Jackson Honest Chips as topping (I get mine at Whole Foods or Wild by Nature)

 

Directions:

  1. Cut head of cauliflower into florets and steam until tender
  2. Place ½ of the steamed florets into a food processor or blender ( I used the Vitamix)
  3. Add ½ cup of your chicken broth and blend until smooth
  4. Remove the blended mash and place in a bowl
  5. Toss the other ½ of florets into your blender, add the remaining ½ cup of broth and blend until smooth
  6. Remove mash and add into the bowl with the first batch
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste
  8. Crush up your yummy Jackson Honest chips and sprinkle on top!
