Cauliflower mash with cottage cheese

Cauliflower and cottage cheese mash

Good for you … it might look bland but cauliflower is actually bursting with nutrients.

For such a bland looking vegetable cauliflower is surprisingly nutrient rich. It provides one of the highest sources of calcium for a vegetable, with just 1/2 a cup of cauliflower containing 50 per cent of your recommended daily intake.

It’s also high in vitamin K — which is essential for the production of blood clotting factors — and high in folate which is super important for growing little bodies.

This cauliflower mash with cottage cheese is so tasty and goes well as a side to any meat dish.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/2 cauliflower (around 500g)

200g full fat cottage cheese

 

Method

1. Remove florets of cauliflower from the stem and place in a steamer.

2. Steam for 15 minutes on high heat or until cauliflower is soft.

3. Remove lid from steamer and allow to stand for 5 minutes to ensure cauliflower is not too wet, resulting in a sloppy mash.

4. Place cauliflower and cottage cheese in a bowl and mash until a desired consistency. You can also place ingredients in a food processor and whiz for about a minute if you want a smooth puree.

Handy tips

This freezes really well. I freeze any leftover mash into cubes and place in a snap lock bag to make for easy meals for Molly.
