Ingredients
  • 1 Cauliflower, washed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Garlic cloves, skins on
  • Large handful Fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C Fan, 200°C electric, 390°F or gas mark 6. Once, preheated roast the garlic cloves for 15-20 minutes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  2. Meanwhile, blend the cauliflower pieces in a food processor until you have what resembles rice. This takes only 30 seconds in my very powerful thermomix but will depend on your appliance. Give your processor a quick clean and dry as you will need it again briefly.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan or iron skillet on a medium low heat and add the cauliflower rice. Cook for approximately ten minutes, stirring continuously until the cauliflower is soft and well-cooked.
  4. Return the cooked cauliflower to the food processor with the roasted garlic, basil and butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste and blend well to achieve a mash consistency.
