  • Place cauliflower in a metal or silicone steamer basket inside a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add 1 cup water to the pot. Close and lock the lid. Select Steam function; set timer for 4 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Drain cauliflower and transfer to a deep bowl. Add Parmesan cheese, butter, MCT oil, vinegar, and salt. Mix with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in diced bacon. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the reserved bacon grease.

I followed the recipe 100%, used exactly the the specified ingredients (all of which I had in the pantry). The only difference was I did the cauliflower in the microwave. It worked really well. My wife gave me big praise on this one. Read More
