Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C (immunity), vitamin K (blood clotting) and folate (cell division, DNA synthesis).
It can be used as a fantastic and tasty alternative to potato. Less calories, less carbohydrate and more nutrients.
Last night I treated Mrs Wellard to some Cauliflower mash
1 – I steamed cauliflower florets for 15 minutes (until soft), as well as softening chopped leek in a frying pan with butter.
2- Once both the leeks and cauliflower are cooked, put in a bowl with salt and pepper.
3- Either use a potato masher or a hand wizen and mash/mix the cauliflower/leek mix.
4- You could add a little cheddar cheese!!
