Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 4
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • ⅓ can coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp ghee (optional as it makes the puree even more creamy, but can be omitted for a vegan version)
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  1. Cut the cauliflower into florettes. I don't use the stem for the puree, but I usually save the stem or even some leaves for when I'm cooking a broth or a veggie soup.
  2. Put a pot with water over high heat and bring it to boil. Add a pinch of salt into the water and lower the heat a little. Place the cauliflower in the boiling water and boil it for ca 5 minutes (or until soft).
  3. Strain the cauliflower and while still hot place it into a food processor (or back to the pot if you are using a hand blender).
  4. Add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
  5. Serve as a side dish instead of potato puree or mash. For example with the Loaded Meatloaf or Chicken Strips.
