  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 4-6 tablespoons butter
  • A splash of cream optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut the cauliflower into florets and place in a medium pan in approximately 1/2 cup water.
  • Bring to the boil and then simmer with the lid on until cauliflower is tender- this can take 15-25 minutes. Alternatively microwave on high with a dash of water until cauliflower is tender or steam cauliflower till tender.
  • Drain any excess water off the cauliflower really well. Add butter, cream, salt and pepper.
  • Using a stick blender, blitz until the mash is smooth and creamy.


  • Add fresh herbs such as parsley or chives
  • Add 50 gm of cream cheese or sour cream for a richer creamier mash
  • Add sautéed garlic and onion
  • Add 1/2 cup grated cheese of choice and a dollop of sour cream
