Will this fool people into thinking their eating mashed potatoes?
How can this have 23g protein per serving?
Jessica you are absolutely correct. I hate it when I miss this, but thanks to you I was able to correct the facts. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Happy Crocking! Enjoy…
Stupid question…I’m on a fat free healthy kick here lately….& I was wondering if I could use Olive Oil instead of the grass fed butter?? I’m sure you’ll say yes, but I don’t know if it will ruin the recipe or not…
Beth it should not ruin the recipe for you. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!

You can add a lot of protein when adding your butter also had a hefty dollop of plain Greek yogurt as a sour cream substitute. That could grab you a bunchn of protein. Well over 20 g.
Love your blog and recipes! is the # on the left above “tweet” the serving amount that the recipe yields? Definitely considering this or the mashed potato recipe for thanksgiving, and was needing to feed 10-12 people. Obviously if it is 2 servings only for this recipe, than I need 4-5 heads of cauliflower chopped own, correct? Any who, thanks again. I love you thai coconut curry with chicken recipe, its just so good, reminds me of this butter curry from my favorite indian food truck called india jones.
Hello Jaclyn, The serving size for the Cauliflower Garlic Mashed Potatoes is for 6, therefore you will want to at least double this recipe per your message. Thank you for the question, and Happy Crocking!
Can you please tell me what size slow cooker you used. It would really help if you could include this info on all of your recipes, or have I missed this somewhere?

If you whip it Shelly, it will be very good!
Was just wondering if there is a particular reason you didn’t reply to my question about crockpot size? I asked the same question on another one of your recipes and didn’t get a reply to that one either! I know that the size of the crockpot can make a difference and I don’t want to ruin a recipe. Thanks. If you always use the same size and I’m just not aware of that, I apologize.
Hi Wendy, I don’t always use the same size slow cooker. The key is that your slow cooker be 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly. I also don’t always put a slow cooker size, as I find that my FB friends may skip over a recipe if they don’t have that size, and I want them to know all recipes can be made in what you have, they may just need to double a recipe for some slow cookers, or halve a recipe for other sizes. I also apologize if I missed your questions. Also for this recipe I… Read more »
Just finished making this and set slow cooker on High for three hours. Flavor is good, but consistency and texture seem lacking. Chicken broth made it kind of watery, and not smooth/creamy, as I had hoped. Really needs heavy cream or something like that, but didn’t want to use that due to fat and calories. So, guess I am disappointed with end result. That’s okay though. Still glad I tried it.
