Ingredients

 
  • 1
    head of cauliflower – stalk and all, just remove the leaves
  • 1
    Tbs
    butter
  • 1
    Tbs
    cream
  • 1
    tsp
    olive oil
  • 1
    egg yolk
  • 1/2
    cup
    grated Parmesan or other hard cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
 
 

Method

 

Preheat your oven to 180°C.

Chop the cauliflower roughly into florets (this will speed up cooking time rather than leaving it whole).
Steam the cauliflower in a vegetable steamer until cooked. You could boil the cauliflower, but it retains nutrients and flavour much better if steamed.

Once a knife can be easily inserted into the thickest part of the stalk, it’s cooked. Remove from the steamer and allow the excess moisture to drain and steam off.

Meanwhile, in a blender add all the other ingredients and once the cauliflower has cooled off a bit, add it to the blender and blitz everything together until completely smooth.

If you plan to use it as a topping for a dish like cottage pie, then scoop it over the dish and bake as usual.
If you're serving it as a side dish, then put it in an oven-proof dish and leave it in the oven for roughly 10 minutes to keep warm while you prepare the rest of the meal.

Serves 2 as a side or topping for one main meal.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
