There’s nothing more comforting than a steaming bowl of mash. My take on the classic has cauliflower and carrot – bumping up its nutritional value with a heap of essential vitamins – and my favourite spice to create the ultimate winter comfort dish. Enjoy with your protein of choice!


Serves: 2

  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp boiling water
  • Salt, pepper, sesame seeds and chilli flakes



  1. Steam the cauliflower and carrots over a pot of boiling water for 7-10 minutes, until very soft.
  2. Add the steamed cauliflower and carrots to your food processor.
  3. Pulse in short bursts, adding the olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin to taste.
  4. Pour in the water so the ingredients start to puree/become mash-like.
  5. Add to a bowl and season with sesame seeds, cumin spice and optional chilli flakes.



  • If you don’t have the cookware to steam your veggies, you can add them to a large pot of boiling water and boil them until soft. Then add to the food processor and continue on with the recipe!
