This cauliflower mash is silky smooth and makes the perfect base for a curry dish or stew. Add some steamed or roasted veg for a complete vegetarian meal.
about 700g cauliflower (one average head)
Cut the cauliflower into chunks, including the stalks, and place in a saucepan.
Add the milk, cream and salt and bring to a boil – DO NOT LET IT BOIL OVER!
Turn the heat down so that the liquid simmers lightly, put the lid on and allow to simmer until the cauliflower is soft enough to insert a toothpick into it easily.
Pour the cauliflower-milk mixture into a blender and add the butter. Process until the mixture is smooth and silky.
Season with salt, pepper and some more butter.
Serve warm with your favourite casserole or as a delicious side.
