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

fresh chives

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!
