- Becky Craigo
- 1 TBS Butter flavored coconut oil or butter.
- 1/4 tsp Onion powder
- 1/2 to 1 Tsp Salt to taste
- 3 oz Carrots
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 Cup Beef Broth from my Pressure Cooker Pot Roast plus the mushrooms strained from the broth.
- Using a steamer basket, steam the carrots inside a pressure cooker using 1 cup of broth from the pressure cooker pot roast for 4 minutes using a manual release. If you did not make the pot roast instead use one cup of beef broth, 1/2 tsp liquid aminos and 1/4 tsp red boat fish sauce.
- Meanwhile, microwave the frozen cauliflower for about 5 minutes. If you are using a fresh cauliflower, cut out the stem and then chop finely. Steam the Fresh Cauliflower.
- Place the soft cooked cauliflower inside of a narrow bowl or large mouthed jar. I like to recycle an old large yogurt container for this step. Add the coconut oil or butter and seasonings. Using an immersion blender, blend the cauliflower until it is creamy and smooth. Salt to taste.
- When the pressure cooker is done steaming the carrots turn off the pressure cooker using the manual release method. Using an immersion blender, blend everything together, directly inside of the pressure cooker until creamy. This will take about 5 minutes to blend. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve on top of EVERYTHING!
