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

Salt & Pep­per

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.

  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.

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….) […]
