1 clove(s) Garlic
1 tbsp Coconut oil
1/2 onion(s) Sweet onion (quartered)
1 cup Cauliflower
1 dash Cumin
1/2 piece, 1-inch Turmeric root (finely minced)
1 cup Butternut squash (leftover frozen cubed)
1/2 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (more to taste)

1 pinch Himalayan sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Crush garlic and set aside. Place coconut oil in a pan and melt in the oven if solid.
  2. Toss cauliflower, onion, cumin, and turmeric with the oil and roast in the oven for 40 minutes tossing a couple of times throughout.
  3. While that is cooking, take the squash cubes and warm up in a small pot with 1/2 cup almond milk.
  4. Mash squash, adding cayenne pepper, nutmeg, and orange zest to taste. If necessary, add more almond milk to meet desired consistency.
  5. When the oven timer reaches 30 minutes, add salt, pepper, garlic, and almonds slices to the cauliflower.
  6. Once cooked through, at about 35-45 minutes, remove from oven and serve cauliflower on top of mashed squash, drizzling remaining oil from the pan on top.
