Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine mashed potatoes, cauliflower, onion, jalapeño pepper, ginger, garlic, salt, cumin, turmeric, and paprika. Stir in broth.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Cool slightly.**

  • Transfer cauliflower mixture, half at a time, to a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth. If necessary, return pureed mixture to cooker; cover and cook on high-heat setting until heated through.

  • If desired, garnish each serving with yogurt, cilantro, and/or sliced jalapeno.


Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.


If desired, omit Step 3 and serve immediately from slow cooker.
