Sour Cream and Chive Cauliflower Mash

It’s hard to believe that it’s Thanksgiving week again; in the past 6 weeks we’ve gotten married and put in an offer on a few houses(!!). This past weekend we had amazing time with our friends Matt and Stacy of Paleo Parents and Nicole of Merit + Fork to celebrate Friendgiving. There was a gigantic spread of food, and you have to check out the Thanksgiving roundup! If you’re doubtful, check out the amazing prime rib that Matt cooked.

The time spent with family and friends during this time of year is special, and Heather and I are starting new traditions as well. This cauliflower mash will definitely be a staple moving forward. We hope you’ll enjoy it, too!

8 Tbsp ghee
6 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 C chives, finely minced
