Cauliflower Mash (Recipe)

By From The 'Food Matters' Recipe Book


  • 1 head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 25 grams butter, cubed
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • Nutmeg, ground (if whole, use a microplane to grate it finely)
  • 1/2 tsp of unrefined sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Tools You'll Need

  • A steamer or steamer basket
  • A potato masher or food processor


1. Put the cauliflower florets in a steamer basket. Cook until tender. Transfer into a colander to let excess liquid drain.

2. Combine the cauliflower, garlic, butter, salt and pepper. You could either mash this with a potato masher in a bowl or put through a food processor. Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve sprinkled lightly with nutmeg.


Cheesy Mash: mix through 4 oz (120 g) of grated mature raw cheese.
