Balsamic Roast
  1. Dice the onion and mince the garlic cloves and then add all the ingredients to the slow cooker/crock pot
  2. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours - the meat will shred easily with a fork when done
  3. Remove the roast to a side plate and slice or shred as desired
  4. Pour the remaining contents of the slow cooker into a blender and pulse a few times to combine and then pour over the roast as a sauce/gravy. I topped with a dash of parsley for a little pizzazz!
Cauliflower Mash
  1. Chop the cauliflower into about 1 inch florets and then place in a large stock pot with a small amount of water. Cover and steam over medium heat until tender. This will take about 10-12 minutes
  2. Drain the cauliflower and add to a blender/food processor along with all the other ingredients and blend until smooth. Adjust salt and pepper as necessary.
  3. You can use this recipe as side for many other recipes and can add additional spices like oregano, thyme, rosemary, etc. to spice things up and match with your mains!
