The original recipe for this was Pulled Pork Taco Bites with the pork served on roasted butternut squash slices. There was no way I was making tiny taco bites for a weeks worth of meals though, so I improvised and came up with this Garlic Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Mash. Sounds gross and I totally questioned myself all weekend if I should experiment with this or not, but I did anyways and I am so glad I went through with it. Not only did the mash turn out tasting delicious, but it was a seriously tasty pair with the pulled pork and mango salsa! If you are doubting the cauliflower part of the mash, then just leave it out, but honestly I didn't taste a bit of cauliflower and it was a sneaky way of adding some more nutrients into the meal. For the pork I used my new InstaPot again, but you can also make it in the slow cooker if you have that. There are also recipes for Mango Salsa, Traditional Salsa, and Chunky Guacamole for topping choices, so all of the variety! I personally loved the mango salsa, but that was the only one I tried. You can also check out your local grocery store's fresh made salsa and see if their ingredients are paleo-approved if you want to save some time in the kitchen. This meal was seriously as amazing as it looks and definitely one I recommend trying!
