  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped herbs ( I used oregano thyme, and parsley)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons butter or ghee
  • Salt to taste


  • Peel the leaves from the cauliflower and cut into medium florets. Pop into the slow cooker with the whole garlic cloves, vegetable broth, and enough water to cover the cauliflower
  • Cook on high for 3 hours, or low for 6 hours. Once finished, drain really well (you need to drain really well). If you have a handheld blender or you plan to hand mash then pop the cauliflower back into the slow cooker. If you want a super smooth and creamy mash then pop it into a high speed blender
  • Add in the parmesan and butter and mash/blend to desired consistency. Season to taste and add in the fresh herbs
  • Pop back into the slow cooker, and set to ‘keep warm’ until ready to serve
