Superfood Mediterranean Cauliflower Mash


Step 1Place the cauliflower florets in a steamer, and cook for 10 to 12 minutes. Once the cauliflower has cooked, remove from the heat, remove the lid and let the steam escape.

Step 2While the cauliflower is cooking, peel and dice the onion and mince the garlic. In a pan greased with ghee or olive oil, cook the onion over medium-high heat until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for 1 minute more. Take off the heat and set aside.

Step 3Boil water in a kettle and pour in a bowl with spinach and watercress. Leave in the hot water for 30 seconds to wilt and then strain and transfer to a bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain and squeeze excess liquid out.

Step 4Place the drained greens in a blender with the cauliflower, caramelized onion and garlic, butter (or olive oil for dairy-free), and fresh herbs (basil or parsley), plus salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth and set aside.

Step 5To serve, optionally add some more butter or olive oil on top. To store, let it cool, cover, and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Step 6Reheat before serving and try with pan-fried salmon, roast chicken, steak or pork chops.
