You will need: 1 head of cauliflower, 2 tbsp. of ghee (clarified butter), 3 cloves of fresh garlic, salt and pepper, ¼ cup half and half creamer (or full fat coconut milk), ¼ cup parmesan cheese.

First, boil a big pot of water. On a chopping block cut your cauliflower into tiny little florets. Place these florets in the water (after it comes to a boil). You will want to boil these pieces for about 10 minutes.

You will also need to cut the cloves of garlic and add to the boiling pot of water with the cauliflower pieces.

Boiling and chopping the cauliflower!

Once the florets are nice and soft, pour the pieces over a strainer and let cool just a little bit. Add the pieces to a food processer. My food processer was really tiny, so needed to do this in three segments.

Add the cauliflower florets (and garlic) to the processor along with the cream, ghee and parmesan. Then mix it up. It will make a nice paste that resembles mashed potatoes. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Once you have made an entire bowl of faux mashed potatoes, place them in a glass/oven safe container. Make sure the oven is set to 350 and warm your cauliflower potatoes for about 20 minutes.

The finished product is fantastic. Please try this and let me know what you think!
