  • 400 grams cauliflower about half a head
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets and steam. I usually use a microwave safe container with a splash of water, and steam until completely soft and falling apart. In my microwave, this is usually about 6 - 7 minutes. 

  2. Once falling apart, blend the cauliflower with cubed butter, cream, salt and pepper. Depending on the strength of your blender.food processor this could take 30 seconds - 2 minutes. 

  3. Scrape down the sides as required and continue blending until you are left with a smooth, fluffy mash. 

  4. Note if it doesn't blend smoothly, the cauliflower should have been cooked longer. When in doubt, cook it more not less! You can't overcook it like potato, so keep cooking until a fork goes through the cauliflower like butter.
