HOLD THE PHONE! This is the BEST grain substitution EVER! I swear it tasted like garlic mashed potatoes. This Roasted Onions, Garlic and Cauliflower Mashers was so good I was licking the mixing bowl like I would after I made a brownie mix.
  • 2 heads of fresh cauliflower; peeled, de-stemmed, and chopped into big chunks
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, whole (the more the better)
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • ¼ cup of almond milk (or your choice of dairy)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven for 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the the cauliflower into big chunks and place on a foil or parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Top your chopped cauliflower with 1 large sliced sweet onion and about 4-6 whole cloves of garlic. For me, more is better when you are roasting garlic and adding it to a recipe.
  4. Add olive oil, sea salt and pepper to your vegetables. I used a generous amount of olive oil, about ¼ cup. I made sure all the vegetables were coated well.
  5. Roast everything for 45 minutes. About half way during the cooking process, I took a slotted spoon and “turned” the vegetables making sure they were cooked evenly on all sides. Roast until all the vegetables are cooked through and the onions are somewhat carmalized.
  6. Throw ALL the roasted vegetables into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add a little dairy of your choice if the mashers are too thick. I added about ⅓ cup of almond milk.
  7. Prepare to fight every urge to lick the bowl clean, it is that good!
