This Instant Pot Loaded Cauliflower Mash for the 21 Day Fix and the 2B Mindset is the perfect low carb comfort food topped with bacon, cheddar, and chives!
8 slices of turkey bacon, diced
1 head of cauliflower – roughly chopped or broken apart
2 T parm cheese
4 tsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
⅔ cup of cheddar
1 cup water or broth
Spray Instant Pot with cooking oil spray. Using the saute function on the IP, saute diced bacon until crispy. Remove and set aside.
Add 1 cup of water or broth to IP and set cauliflower in a steam basket or on your trivet. Lock lid and set to 3 minutes. Quick release after the cook time is through.
After cook time, place cauliflower in a food processor along with the butter, parmesan cheese and ¼ tsp of salt and pulse until creamy. **If you feel your cauliflower is water logged, you can wring it out in a cheese cloth before pulsing in the food processor.
Place cauliflower mash in a glass casserole dish and top with shredded cheddar and bacon. Broil until cheese is bubbly. Garnish with chives and enjoy!
