pita chipscelery, carrots, tortilla chips- for dipping!
Cut head of cauliflower into 1 or 2 inch pieces
Place cauliflower pieces into an insert pot- I used my smaller pot in pot insert that I use for meatloaf
Coat cauliflower with olive oil, salt and pepper
Pour 1 cup of water into pot
Place insert onto trivet and into pot
Close the lid and move valve to "seal" position
Cook on manual high pressure for 6 minutes
When timer beeps, quick release pressure
Cauliflower should be soft enough to mash with a potato masher
Mash the cauliflower with a potato masher- I found that the metal version works better than the plastic version for this
Once cauliflower is "mashed" (it won't be completely mashed but will be broken up into mush smaller pieces) mix in the cream cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheese, sour cream and hot sauce. Continue to "mash" until all ingredients are combined evenly
Top with remaining 1 cup shredded cheese
You can leave as is and allow to melt on its own or...
You can place pan in the broiler and brown on the top to add additional melted cheesy goodness
Serve with your favorite dippers.....celery, pita chips, tortilla chips or carrots! Enjoy!
Tips for making Buffalo Cauliflower Dip:1. Make sure that you cut up the cauliflower into 1-2 inch pieces. If you leave the cauliflower whole it will take MUCH longer to fully cook!2. Experiment with different cheeses and hot sauces. I think think this would be awesome with pepper jack or blue cheese! Go crazy and add in whatever you like!3. Don't tell anyone this is made with cauliflower.....seriously...you will leave your guests wondering what the heck this is and what makes it so amazingly delicious!
