Instructions

Basic Mashed Cauliflower

  • Boil the cauliflower in a large saucepan with only a few inches of water in the saucepan. The trick to avoiding soggy mashed cauliflower, is not to boil cauliflower totally immersed in water. 
  • Once the cauliflower pieces are boiled and soft, remove the saucepan from the heat. Drain as much water as you can.
  • Before you begin to mash the cauliflower, leave the lid off the saucepan and gently shake the cauliflower. You will be amazed at how much steam escapes. This is also a crucial step in avoiding soggy mashed cauliflower.
  • For the basic mashed cauliflower, add the butter and salt to taste. Puree using a stick blender with the blade attachment until smooth and lump free.
  • Remove one serving for each member of the family to add their favourite flavour.

Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower

  • Stir the cheese and pepper through the basic mashed cauliflower. Garnish with extra cheese.

Curried Mashed Cauliflower

  • Stir through the curry powder and coconut cream. Garnish with desiccated coconut.

Buttery Mashed Cauliflower

  • Simply add more butter - yum!

Mustard Mashed Cauliflower

  • Add mustard powder and extra butter is sometimes a lovely addition also.
