Cauliflower comes in white, green, and purple varieties, and works wonderfully processed into a mash. Serve with a gravy on it’s own, or alongside your favorite recipe(s).




1 head cauliflower, broken into small pieces, about 6 c

1/4 cup avocado, cubed

2 tablespoons miso, any unpasteurized color

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons thyme or sage, dry


1/3 cup olive oil

3/4 cup mushrooms,

1/3 cup water

1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


*To soften the kick of raw cauliflower, process on it’s own first with 1 cup of filtered water. Strain through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag. Some of the pungent flavor will run off with the water. Or, you can also substitute with broccoli, which is much milder.

Mash: Place all ingredients into your food processor. Process until smooth.

Gravy: Place all ingredients into your blender. Blend smooth.
