Cauliflower purée

October 31, 2019

Serves 4:

  • 1 large cauliflower (perfectly white and tender)
  • 400-600 ml of milk (depending on the size of the cauliflower)
  • 200 ml of double cream
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • salt 
  • white pepper (or use black instead)

Clean the cauliflower from outer leaves and trim off its hard bottom.

With a small knife separate the white inside cauliflower part into large florets and wash in cold water. Put them into a pan and cover with milk. Add a pinch of salt and cook on a small heat until the florets start to turn a little bit soft.

In the meantime heat the cream in a separate pot. Drain well the cauliflower florets (once they are ready) and add them to the pan with the cream. Simmer for further 5 minutes (the cauliflower should be soft by now, if not allow more time to cook) and transfer the mixture into a food processor and blend until you obtain a smooth purée.

Season the cauliflower purée with salt, some nutmeg and freshly ground pepper.
