Mashed ‘Fauxtatoes’

Prep: 5 mins Cook: 15 mins Total: 20 mins Yield: 6-8


  • 1-2 heads of fresh cauliflower, roughly chopped into uniform, large pieces (or 1-2 bags of frozen)
  • 4 Tbsp ghee
  • salt, garlic powder, and other spices to taste


  1. Bring a couple quarts of water to a boil in a large pot or pan.
  2. Add cauliflower and cook until tender.
  3. Drain well. Transfer cooked cauliflower to a large bowl and add ghee.
  4. Use an immersion blender or hand mixer to blend until smooth and creamy. This is the most important step… chunks of cauliflower are a giveaway!
  5. Serve warm. Top with fresh chopped parsley or chives for a nice garnish!

Options for Instant Pot:

  1. Wash and quarter cauliflower, remove leaves and stem.
  2. Add steamer/trivet basket to Instant Pot along with 1 cup water. Add cauliflower pieces.
  3. Set to manual high pressure for 4 minutes.
  4. Manually vent/release pressure. Open, drain and remove inner basket.
  5. Gently squeeze any remaining liquid out of cauliflower and return to pot.
  6. Add other ingredients and whip until creamy
