Garlic Cauli Mash

Garlic Cauli Mash

A delicious, light alternative to potato mash!


Ingredients to serve 5 - 6 people:

2 heads of cauliflower, outer leaves removed

2 cloves of garlic, peeled

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper



1. Break up the head into florets of equal size and chop up the core into small pieces then pace it all in a large saucepan along with enough water to half cover the cauliflower.

2. Add the cloves of garlic and a good pinch of salt.

3. Cover the pot with a lid and place it on a high heat and allow it to come to the boil.

4. Cook the cauliflower for 10 minutes or until it’s tender and can be crushed with the back of a fork.

5. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two in the colander which will allow any excess water to escape. 

6. Transfer back to the pan, pour in the olive oil and season with a good pinch of black pepper then mash away.

7. Have a little taste to check that you’re happy with the seasoning and serve!
