I make this for dinner often and use it as a side dish. It works really well with grilled fish, chicken breast, lamb and as an alternative topping for shepherds pie!


Serves: 3-4

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice – I use almond milk
  • 1 tbsp virgin organic coconut oil or organic butter
  • 3 tbsp. crushed walnuts
  • Himalayan salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika (to serve)



  1. In a pot of boiling water or a steamer  – Steam the cauliflower until  very well cooked, approximately 10-15 minutes. Let it cool.
  2. In a food processor, add the cauliflower, milk, coconut oil or butter, and walnuts, then pulse/ purée the mixture. Alternatively you can use a stick blender until smooth. If it’s too thick, add a little water. Season with salt,  pepper and paprika.
