  • Servings:



2 - 10 oz. Bags of Cauliflower Florets, washed & drained
3 c. chicken or vegetable stock
4 garlic cloves, peeled

Impress your guests this Thanksgiving with these Paleo-inspired Slow Cooker Cauliflower Garlic Mashed “Potatoes.” Shhh, just don’t tell anyone they are “healthy!”

  1. Place cauliflower florets in a 4-Quart slow cooker
  2. Pour the chicken or vegetable stock over the cauliflower – just enough to cover.
  3. Add garlic cloves, and bay leaf.
  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours.
  5. Remove bay leaf and drain any excess liquid/broth into a container. Set aside.
  6. Add butter to the cauliflower.
  7. Use an immersion blender to blend and smooth the cauliflower “potatoes.” Add in the reserved broth, 1 T. at a time, to create a creamier consistency.
  8. Add fresh pepper to taste.  Garnish with green onions and/or bacon crumbles.

Happy Crocking!

Will this fool people into thinking their eating mashed potatoes?

How can this have 23g protein per serving?

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…

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.

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?

I have a very picky family, but am looking for low carb alternatives. This seems like a good choice, but is the texture still grainy after it cooks?

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.

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.


[…] Try THIS recipe, which uses cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes!  Whether you share this side dish over a table with family and friends this holiday or enjoy it as an everyday side dish, this is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket. (Original Recipe from  But we altered it….) […]
