Cuisine Irish


  • 1 large head cauliflower, chopped
  • 1 white turnip, chopped or 1 small/medium sized white sweet potato, chopped
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ½ tsp salt, to taste
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg or mace
  • 1 pinch garlic powder This is optional - I prefer it without, but Scott likes it
  • 5 tbsp lard, bacon fat, or coconut oil
  • ½ medium white onion, chopped
  • ½ bunch curled kale, chopped
  • ½ lb bacon, cooked and chopped eliminate for GAPS or vegan/vegetarian


  • Steam cauliflower and turnip until soft and puree in food processor.
  • Gradually add coconut milk until the mash reaches the consistency of mashed potatoes.
  • Add salt, nutmeg, and garlic and give the food processor one last whirl to mix. Transfer contents of food processor to mixing bowl.
  • Sauté onion in fat/oil until translucent. Add chopped kale to the pan and sauté until just starting to go limp. This won't take long, so be careful.
  • Add onions, kale, and bacon to cauliflower mash and stir to combine.
  • Serve piping hot and enjoy!
