I bet you didn’t think things could get any better than a creamy, buttery bowl of garlic mashed potatoes.

Lucky for you, you’re so wrong.

Yes, you did hear me right! And I’m here to tell you why garlic mashed cauliflower is the new king of hearty sides. Besides the obvious, of course, which is that mashed cauliflower is a veggie and that means you can eat it to your heart’s content without feeling an ounce of guilt.

What may be less obvious to you, especially if you’ve never tried riced or even mashed cauliflower, is that it has a beautifully delicate nutty flavor. Foodies rejoice, this is the kind of flavor complexity we crave!

That also means you won’t need to oversaturate this Garlic Mashed Cauliflower recipe with seasoning. In fact, all you need to do is grab a head of cauliflower at your local store and pop it in the slow cooker.

That’s right, set it and forget it!

I made an account just to let you know that this is not my new favorite side. Dress it up anyway you like, this ghost broccoli still smells like farts and is a sad substitute for mashed potatoes or almost any other side. If you have dietary restrictions or your children are dumb enough to be fooled then I’m happy for you, but stop pretending this is just as good as real butter, garlic, and potatoes. Far from indistinguishable, it is not even comparable.
