Cauliflower/Broccoli Mash

mashPrep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 1 cauliflower, cut into florets, also finely dice the stems
  • 25g butter
  • 4 tbsp milk or single cream
  • Salt, Pepper, herbs and maybe Nutmeg
  1. Steam the cauliflower for 5 minutes (until the cauliflower is tender but not soft)
  2. Warm the milk with the spices and butter until the butter is melted
  3. When the cauliflower is ready, transfer it to the food processor
  4. Blend a little then add the milk for flavour, continue blending until the desired consistency is achieved – smooth or coarse mash.
  5. Place the mash into 4-6 Ramekin dishes
  6. Use a spatula to make a pretty pattern on top
  • If you feel really generous – push a little butter into the centre of the ramekin dish
    or melt a little butter and pour it over the mash, don’t drown the mash, just cover it
  • And if you are really “going overboard” cut some thin cheese fingers a la ‘julienne’ and top the mash.
    Not too much/many as it will overpower the taste of the mash.
  • Place in a hot oven until the cheese has melted and is brown


This recipe can be used for both Cauliflower and Broccoli.
Replace references to cauliflower with broccoli.
Steam the Broccoli for 3-4 minutes only.
The mash can be frozen and reheated when required.
