Creamy cauliflower mash

Creamy cauliflower mash

This mash is a fantastic substitute for mashed potato.  I love it because contains more nutrients and much less (natural) sugar and is still delicious.  All the comfort of regular mash, none of the downside.

1 small head cauliflower, separated into florets
1 leek, white (and 6cm of green if you like), well washed, cut into 1cm slices
1 knob (about the size of a walnut in its shell) of organic ghee (for people with dairy protein tolerance) or butter
2 tbs of unsweetened non dairy milk e.g. Koko coconut milk or (if you can eat dairy you can substitute regular milk or cream)
Pinch of ground nutmeg (optional)
¼ tsp freshly ground black or white pepper
Generous pinch of Atlantic/Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt

1. Steam the cauliflower until softened, then throw the leek in on top and steam everything until very soft.  Drain well.
2. Place the vegetables with the milk, ghee/butter and seasonings in the food processor and blitz for a few minutes until smooth.  It will have some flecks of green thorough it and look like potato mash.

Tip:
Make lots and store leftovers in the freezer.  Reheat in a pan, stirring from time to time.

Variation:
Add 2 good tablespoons of chopped parsley when blitzing.  Its rich in iron and is very good for your kidneys.
