Mashed Cauliflower With Roasted Garlic And Herbs

Mashed Cauliflower With Roasted Garlic And Herbs

This is a great low carb alternative to having mashed potato if you are low on spare carbs for the day. It is packed with flavour and you may find you even prefer it to run of the mill mash!


✓  1 head of cauliflower (approx 700g)

✓ ¼ head of garlic

✓ 5g oil

✓ 10g thyme

✓ Pinch of salt

✓ Pinch of pepper

Begin by preheating your oven to 200 degrees.  Take about ¼ of the head of garlic and peel the cloves. Sprinkle the cloves with oil and wrap them in foil before roasting in the oven for about forty minutes. Take them out of the oven and allow them to cool. Cut the head of cauliflower up and steam it either in a pot or the microwave. Steaming is better than traditional boiling as the vegetable will retain more of its nutrients this way. When it is soft, place it into a food processer and pulse it until it is totally smooth without any lumps left inside it. Squeeze the cloves of garlic into the mixture and pulse further until it is combined in. Add the salt and pepper then serve. This can be frozen and eaten at a later stage.
