For the mashed cauliflower

Instructions

For the chicken and veggies

  • Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  • In a medium bowl, place the chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil, thyme, paprika, onion powder, coriander, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper. Toss everything together, and set aside.
  • On a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper, place the chicken, and roast it for about 15 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, add all the veggies, and season with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Remove the sheet from the oven, and place all the veggies on the same baking sheet. Spread everything out in an even layer, and roast for 10 minutes more.
  • While the chicken and veggies are in the oven, prepare the mashed cauliflower.

For the mashed cauliflower

  • Fill a large pot with about 2 cups of water, and bring it to a boil.
  • Then, place a steamer basket in the bottom of the pot.
  • Add the cauliflower florets to the steamer basket.
  • Cover the pot, and steam until the cauliflower is fork-tender, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat, uncover the pot (this step is important), and let the cauliflower cool for 5 minutes.
  • Place the steamed cauliflower and garlic in a blender jar, and blend until the cauliflower is completely smooth. Transfer to a bowl, add the clarified butter, mayo, salt, and ground black pepper, and stir well to combine.
  • Taste to adjust the seasoning.

MEAL PREPPING:

  • Place an even amount of chicken, veggies, and mashed cauliflower into 4 glass containers. Cover with the lid, and place in the fridge for up 4 days. Heat in the microwave for about 1½-2 minutes. The time depends on the power of your microwave.
