Instant Pot® Mashed Cauliflower with Garlic

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"Using very little liquid, your electric pressure cooker can whip up creamy mashed cauliflower in next to no time. Feel free to add additional Parmesan or any other shredded cheese you like. For a vegan version, use oil in place of butter, skip the cheese entirely, and stir in some nutritional yeast or ground chipotle at the end for additional flavor."
