For the roasted garlic:
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 organic potatoes, quartered (I recommend red and yukon gold)
For the mashed potatoes:
  • 1 head organic cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cashew milk I recommend Forager
  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Unflavored Collagen Can use Collagen Peptides or Marine Collagen
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons organic chives minced
  1. On a piece of aluminum foil, add a head of garlic drizzled with olive oil. Roast at 400F for 1 hour. When done, peel the garlic or squeeze out the cooked garlic from the peels. Set aside.

  2. When the garlic is about 20 minutes from being done, put 1 cup of water in Instant Pot fitted with the steamer basket. Add the potatoes and cauliflower. Manual cook for 7 minutes with top sealed. Release vent when finished to let steam out. 
  3. Add the steamed potatoes, cauliflower and roasted garlic to a large glass bowl. Combine with the remaining ingredients and mash until mixed well and desired consistency is achieved (I prefer my mashed potatoes on the chunky side, so I'm careful not to overmash). Serve and enjoy!
