Easy, Creamy Cauliflower Bacon Mash

Print

You will never miss eating mashed potatoes now that you can have deliciously creamy cauliflower bacon mash instead! A wonderful, low-carb swap for ordinary mashed potatoes.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Relatively low in carbohydrates, cauliflower can be a great swap for higher carb foods such as potatoes or rice for those on a carbohydrate restricted diet, or those looking for a lower calorie alternative. Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, in the same family as broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts, and cabbage. These types of vegetables are especially protective against cancer, as well as containing a good dose of cholesterol-lowering fiber in every serving. A one cup serving of cauliflower contains about 85 percent of your daily vitamin C recommendation, which is as much or even more than the well known citrus fruit sources.

Easy, Creamy Cauliflower Bacon Mash

  • Prep Time:15 minutes
  • Cook Time:25 minutes
  • Servings: 4

Ingredients

1⁄2 pound pastured, uncured bacon, diced
3⁄4 to 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
4 tablespoons grass-fed unsalted butter
2 tablespoons Bulletproof Brain Octane oil (or MCT or coconut oil)
1⁄2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Sea salt

Instructions

1. In a large skillet, lightly cook the bacon over medium-low heat. Do not let it get crispy (keep those fats intact) and do not let the fat smoke.
2. Set the bacon aside and reserve the fat in the pan.
3. In a pot fitted with a steamer insert, bring water to a boil. Add the cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
4. In a high-powered blender, blend three-fourths of the cauliflower with the butter, oil, vinegar, and salt to taste.
5. Stir in the bacon and remaining cauliflower.
6. Pulse the mixture until chunky. For amazing flavor, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat (as long as it didn’t smoke when you were cooking the bacon at a low temperature).
