Cauliflower Mash with Meatballs Smothered in Gravy

Ingredients

For the Cauliflower Mash

  • 1 pound cauliflower, cut into small florets or riced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ teaspoon avocado oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional: additional grated Parmesan cheese and parsley for garnish

For the Meatballs

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

For the gravy

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • *cornstarch slurry (if the gravy is too watery)

Instructions

  1. Bring water to a boil in the lower part of a steamer. Place cauliflower in the upper part and season with salt to taste. Steam the cauliflower until tender, about 7-10 minutes total.
  2. Transfer steamed cauliflower (drain the water) to a food processor. Reserve about ¼th cup of the flower and set aside. Add the salt, black pepper, butter, Parmesan cheese and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the ¼th cup of cauliflower. Set aside.
  3. For the meatballs: Combine all the ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Mix together taking care not to over mix the meat. Form each meatball by hand doing so gently, about 2 inches in diameter.
  4. Heat two tablespoons of avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs to the skillet and cook for 8-10 minutes, rotating each ball, until cooked through and browned. Remove the meatballs from the pan, and set aside.
  5. For the gravy: Add the butter to the exact same skillet the meatballs were in over medium-high heat. Once melted, add the beef stock, heavy cream, and garlic powder . Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the gravy has thickened (can coat the back of a spoon) about 5-7 minutes.
  6. To serve add the cauliflower mash to a bowl. Place the meatballs on top and ladle the gravy on top. Garnish with parsley if desired.
