Crock Pot Cauliflower Garlic Mash (Crock Pot or Stove)

This is a great side dish with your protein.  If your in a rush, you can also just boil the cauliflower and garlic on the stove top until tender.

This makes 2 servings with approx 2 grams of carbs per serving.

You can double this recipe if you need more.

  1. Hi Christine,
    My husband is bordeline type2 diabetic and will not give up his potatoes. I had read that mashed cauliflower was a great substitute for mashed potatoes. Alas! You have a great recipe I can’t wait to try! Thank you so much for all the low carb recipe’s you offer! Also, love the fact that most can be used in a crockpot and that you give explicit detail as to brands and tips! Will be trying several of them! Yum Yum! Will let you know how we like them!

  2. I love Cauliflower mostly fresh, but have used the frozen too. I like to steam cook my vegetables instead of boiling them. They have so much more flavor when steamed versus boiling and look better than watered down vegetables.
