Other ways to cook the cauliflower:
Cook in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat for 7 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons of water and cover the pan with a lid. Cook 3-4 minutes covered. This will allow the cauliflower to get a nice charred flavor and also allow it to be tender enough to blend in the food processor.
Cook the cauliflower on the grill. Use a vegetable basket or over aluminum foil so the cauliflower doesn’t fall through the grates. Grill over medium heat until tender. Allow to cool before cooking in the food processor.
Storage:Refrigerator: Store in the fridge in a well-sealed container for up to 3 days. To ensure that the guacamole stays fresh, you can add plastic wrap to the guacamole to ensure that there is less air hitting the guacamole. To do this you will want to press the plastic wrap down on top of the guacamole.
