  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 head cauliflower , stem trimmed and leaves removed
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced chives


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Slice top off entire head of garlic. Pour olive oil over top, sprinkle with salt, and wrap in foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until soft.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Blanch the entire head of cauliflower for 4-5 minutes or until a sharp knife or skewer can easily pass through. Watch carefully; you do not want it too mushy. Remove carefully and place in a colander to drain. Once drained, place the cauliflower in a large bowl and break into smaller pieces with a knife or spatula. Add remaining ingredients (save some chives for garnish). Use a hand blender to mix completely. Garnish with reserved chives.


Editor’s Note: For a creamier mash, add a splash or two of dairy-free milk.
