I have been buying ready-to-bake frozen mashed cauliflower for many months.  Although it takes long cooking time, at least 45 minutes, I like the fact that it is convenient and I only need to pop it into the oven whenever I need to.

One day, I was talking to our niece about the coming up holiday dinner.  She was thinking to serve mashed cauliflower for my husband and I because of our keto diet.  We ended up not having any mashed cauliflower that dinner because we figured that we would get off our keto diet train that day.  But the conversation sparked my interest to create my own mashed cauliflower from scratch.  As a result, this recipe was born.



CHEF NOTES

Yes, you can double or triple this easy mashed cauliflower with garlic recipe.  Once it cooks down, it only takes up about 1/6 of my 6-quart slow cooker.

If you are not a garlic fan, feel free to skip this ingredient.  The broth still gives it plenty of flavors.

You can also replace it with vegetable broth.

If there is any leftover, use no-stick cooking spray to coat a food container before transferring the mashed cauliflower into it.  This will make cleaning your dishes much easier.
