For the Mashed Cauliflower

  • 2 tbsp grass fed gelatin
  • 2 heads-cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp nutritional-yeast (optional, if following AIP, make sure you’re using a nutritional yeast derived from molasses like this one)
  • ¼ cup dairy-free-milk I prefer coconut milk (you’ll add this 1 tbsp at a time, and may not use it all)
  • 2 tbsp beef-tallow (optional, to add a dairy-free butter flavor – use grass fed butter if you tolerate dairy)
  • 2 tsp sea-salt

For the Ranch Seasonings (Optional)

  • ½ tsp garlic-powder
  • ¼ tsp onion-powder
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • ½ tsp dried dill


  • Begin with taking away the leafy part of the stem and roughly chop the heads of cauliflower. It is fine to incorporate the remaining portion of the stem because the cauliflower is going to be steamed and mixed.
  • Steam chopped oats together with your method of choice. I suggest that a stovetop method. Then add steamed cauliflower into a food-processor or blender.
  • To get a conventional mashed cauliflower version, add nutritional yeast (optional to get a smoky flavor), gelatin ( adds a thicker texture), and approximately 1-2 teaspoon sea-salt. For the ranch variant, include the ranch-seasonings.
  • Begin with adding only 1 tbsp dairy-free-milk (such as coconut-milk) & mixing all of the ingredients together on food-processor.
  • Blend till smooth. Add dairy-free-milk by the tbsp till desired consistency is reached. Make sure you test cauliflower to be certain it's salted for your liking.
