Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 medium size head of cauliflower
  • 2 medium onions, sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock (plus more for consistency)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. In a large pan over medium-low heat sauté onions and fresh thyme in olive oil for 10-12 minutes until soft, stirring frequently. Add 1/4 cup chicken stock and balsamic vinegar. Cover and cook additional 5-8 minutes until all liquid is evaporated and onions are caramelized. You may need to add a bit more stock and continue stirring to achieve desired consistency.
  2. Meanwhile, chop cauliflower into small florets and boil until soft (about 6 minutes).
  3. Transfer cauliflower to a food processor, add 1/4 cup chicken stock salt and pepper and puree until smooth.
  4. Serve mashed cauliflower topped with caramelized onions.
