Sorry it’s been a while! Recently we’ve had a few things I’ve already told you about!
Plus this one isn’t the best to photograph, whatever angle you take. It’s hard enough to just serve it up without it ending up upside down. It’s a Hemsley Hemsley recipe that goes down a treat in this colder weather.
To make the cauliflower mash you need two cauliflowers with the outer leaves removed, 25g butter, four whole garlic cloves (peeled) and salt & pepper. Chop the cauliflower into 5cm chunks. Place the butter , four tablespoons of water, and the garlic cloves in a pan, and top with the cauliflower to steam for 8 minutes. Check to make sure there is enough water – the cauliflower needs to be tender when tested with a knife. Once cooked, puree with a hand blender until smooth. We stirred in some english mustard but there’s a whole host of things you could use (if you want) -chopped spring onion, stilton, feta, rosemary, thyme…
To be honest, I was worried I would miss the mashed potato – my nan makes an awesome shepherds pie, so obviously nothing will live up to that… but the cauliflower mash came surprisingly close!
