Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower chopped
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons ghee or Kerrygold butter
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 pound sugar- and nitrate-free prosciutto ham chopped
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Fresh ground organic black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat a (preferably cast-iron) pan and add all but 1 tablespoon of ghee or butter.
  2. Once heated, add onions. Cook for about 10 minutes until golden and caramelizing. You can go up to 30 minutes for a sweeter taste - this part is all about the chef’s preference.
  3. Once done, add ham and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Turn off the burner and place a lid on the pan.
  5. While the onions are cooking, break apart cauliflower and boil until fork ready.
  6. Strain the cauliflower, then use a hand masher to get it to semi-lumpy.
  7. Once done, add remaining ghee or butter. Also slowly add your coconut milk. Add 1/4 cup or less at a time until you reach your desired consistency. The right amount can vary, so go slowly as not to water it down. You want a rich, creamy texture.
  8. Once this is done, throw it into the onion-and-ham pan and turn the heat back up! Add all remaining ingredients and heat for about 3 minutes.
  9. Add a side salad and enjoy this wonderful Italian classic!
