Slow Cooker Ranch-Style Whole Cauliflower

This recipe can be found on NoThanksToCake.com.


  • 1 whole cauliflower head tough greens removed and trimmed on the bottom to sit flat
  • 1 cup broth, vegetable or chicken
  • 1 Tbsp. Ranch dressing mix


  • Place the cauliflower into the pot of a slow cooker. Rub the Ranch seasoning mix over the surface of the cauliflower. Pour broth in the bottom of the pot.
  • Following manufacturer’s instructions for the slow cooker, set to cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. The cauliflower will likely be done before this, but will continue to get more tender as it sits. You’ll know it’s done when you can stick a sharp knife down the center to the bottom of the stem.
  • Right before removing cauliflower, turn on the broiler, and place a rack in the center of the oven. Place cauliflower into a small, shallow dish or baking sheet. Place in oven. Broil for 3–5 minutes, until the top is browned and bubbling. Serve warm, cut into wedges or steaks. Note: This broiler step can also be accomplished using your air fryer, if you prefer.
