Ohhhhh cauliflower puree how I adore thee!  I’m a late bloomer to mashed cauliflower.  I never liked mashed potatoes so I never wanted an alternative.  I don’t even remember what provoked me to try mashed cauliflower but since I have, I’ve been a devoted mashed cauliflower follower!

I served this dish at the first paleo potluck I hosted.  It received rave reviews which I found confusing.  I was like, it’s just cauliflower and ghee and some salt….haven’t you had any before?  I hear most people’s cauliflower ends up a watery mashed mess.  Here’s what I do and it’s not complicated.

p.s. I enjoy adding dulse to dishes like this.  I got this tip from following Terry Wahls (my hero!).  She says to add dulse/seaweed to dishes like soups/stews etc for extra iodine.

  1. Place the cauliflower into a pot and add enough water to cover the cauliflower.
  2. Sprinkle some salt and dulse into the water.
  3. Boil for 15 minutes.
  4. Drain the water from the pot. *Very important to drain all the water.
  5. Add the butter or ghee to the pot.
  6. Sprinkle 1/8 tsp of salt into the pot.
  7. Use a
    hand blender and puree the cauliflower and butter until smooth.
  8. Adjust salt as necessary.

    Hi, I’m working my way throught your recipes they all look so delicious. My question though is, do you leave the dulse with the cauliflower when you puree it or take it out?

      I leave it for the nutrition.
