Caramelized Onions and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower

Go read that title again.  It’s a title worth reading twice.

Did you read it?  Did you take it all in? Did you realize that today I’m giving you a recipe with Caramelized Onions, Bacon, and the texture + taste of Mashed Potatoes?

C’mon now, that’s like everything good in life!

And… this recipe is also low carb, pretty healthy, super easy, and (I’m pretty sure it’s) paleo.  I’m still a bit fuzzy on the rules for that one.

But no matter if it’s paleo or not, this is one of the best things you’ll have tasted in a while.  It’s healthy comfort food at it’s absolute best.

Caramelized Onions and Bacon Mashed Cauliflower

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked until crispy and chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • salt + pepper, to taste
Chop cauliflower into florets and place in a casserole dish.  Cover about 1/4 of the way with water and microwave for 5-7 minutes (in 1-2 minutes rounds), until fork tender.  If you prefer, you can also steam the cauliflower.  Transfer cooked cauliflower to a food processor.  Process until a mashed potato consistency is reached.  Add garlic powder and vinegar and process until incorporated.  Caramelize onion in a small saucepan (if you don’t know how to caramelize an onion, see here).  Add the onion to food processor along with bacon and parsley.  Process again to mix everything together.  Scoop mashed cauliflower into desired serving dish, and season with salt and pepper.  Please note that this recipe makes only 2 servings.  If you want more, feel free to double or even triple the recipe.

Make this and I can almost guarantee your day will improve.  For real.
