Instant Pot Cauliflower Mash

Want that mashed potato feeling without all the carbs, starch and guilt?

Use cauliflower instead!

Believe me when I tell you I used to HATE the stuff, but my taste buds were totally tricked into not realizing how delicious and similar to mashed potatoes this tastes!

And it’s also a home run because it’s SUPER HEALTHY and done SO QUICKLY in the Instant Pot!

Here’s How I Made It!:

Take a head of cauliflower, discard the bottom stalk, any green leaves and rip into large chunks.
With the trivet in the Instant Pot, add in some chicken broth…
…and rest the cauliflower on top of the trivet.  Secure the lid and cook at high pressure.
When done, remove the trivet, leaving some (or all) of the broth in the pot.  The more broth you keep, the thinner the mash; the less, the thicker.
Now, take a potato masher…
…and mash the cauliflower in with whatever broth you decided to keep.
Add in a little butter, black pepper and whatever other seasoning you may like. Mix it all together…
…and serve!  SO EASY!  SO GOOD!  SO HEALTHY!
  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 1-2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth (use 1 cup instead of 2 if you want it to be thicker)
  • A little butter (about 1 tbsp), and add some salt and pepper to taste (start with 1/2 tbsp).  You can also add any other seasonings you desire – the sky’s the limit!

Once done cooking, you can spill out 3/4 of the chicken broth before mashing and then add a little milk (skim, whole, almond or whatever) and then transfer to a food processor or blender for it to be SUPER creamy.  Like a delicious purée!  Heck, sprinkle in some cheese if you want so it gets all gooey inside!   You can fool ANYONE into believing they are eating mashed potatoes – guaranteed!

Make it Vegan-friendly by subbing the necessary ingredients to make it so!

  1. Separate the cauliflower heads into large chunks and discard the stalk and all green leaves
  2. Add the trivet to the Instant Pot 
  3. Add the chicken broth
  4. Place the cauliflower chunks on top and seal lid
  5. Set high pressure for 4 minutes and do a quick release when done
  6. Ladle out about out half the broth for a thicker consistency. Mash the cauliflower in the pot
  7. Add the butter, salt and pepper or any other seasonings you love (I like to add some garlic powder/salt and a dash of curry!)
  8. Enjoy!
