This is a quick, easy way to get that cauli mash sorted while you finish prepping whatever else it is you might be eating! When I didn’t have my thermomix, I would have to steam the cauli first before blitzing everything in the food processor. The thermomix makes it so easy! I love it. I also prefer to use frozen cauli as I never run out – I have about 9 bags in the freezer at the moment! (Yes, I have a HUGE freezer) 🙂

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag frozen cauliflower (500g)
  • 75g butter
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup pure cream (thick or pouring)
  • Pink salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Method:
  1. Place cauliflower into bowl and blend gradually increasing speed up to 7 until cauliflower is blitzed! (About 7 seconds).
  2. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  3. Add butter and cook for 12 min at 100°C with the MC on
  4. Add cream, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper and blend for 30 sec at speed 7.
  5. GIve it one final blitz by slowly increasing the speed up to 8 and then back down again (only do this if you like it extra smooth!)
Options:
  • Use fresh cauliflower. Just pulse a few times on turbo before moving onto step 2. No need to obliterate the fresh stuff!
  • Omit the cream and butter for dairy-free (see below for alternatives)
  • Butter alternatives: ghee, olive oil
  • Cream alternatives: almond milk, coconut milk,
Flavour Variations:
  • Garlic Mash: add 2 teaspoons Garlic powder, OR garlic flakes OR 1-2 cloves of chopped fresh garlic (if using fresh, blitz and cook with the cauliflower)
  • Curried Mashed Cauliflower: add ½ Tbsp. curry powder, ¼ tsp.cayenne pepper powder and ¼ tsp. turmeric.
  • Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower: add ¼ cup grated cheese and a Tbsp.of cream or coconut milk.
  • Herbed Mashed Cauliflower: add 1 sprig fresh thyme, 1 sprig fresh rosemary finely minced and fresh chopped chives.
  • Smokey Barbecue Mashed Cauliflower: ½ tsp. smoked paprika, ½ tsp. turmeric, ½ tsp. chili powder, ½ tsp. cumin, ½ tsp. ground coriander.
