  • 1 head cauliflower (2 lbs)
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 oz roasted green chiles
  • 1 Tbs lime juice
  • 3 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (loosely packed)


  1. Wash cauliflower and remove leaves and stem
  2. Break into large pieces
  3. Add your instant pot trivet and 1 cup of water
  4. Add cauliflower and cook on MANUAL for 3 minutes
  5. Let pressure release naturally for 5 then vent remaining
  6. Discard water and add cauliflower to your blender
  7. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth

If you do not own an Instant Pot - you can always steam the cauliflower on your stovetop.  Cook until very tender - about 5 to 10 minutes.   Note:  Smaller uniform pieces cook faster and evenly.
