Cauliflower Pureé in Thermomix
This recipe has been a major player in our meal planner for ages, and we’re so happy to finally be able to share it with you! Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable that tastes great when cooked the right way, is plentiful and economical, and can also be super healthy; not only is it naturally rich in vitamins, fibre and omega-3 fatty acids, it also helps to lower the carb content of so many meals by transforming it into cauliflower couscous (from miniseries: super healthy), cauliflower rice (from miniseries: low carb), and now our cauliflower purée, which is gluten-free to boot! Use this purée as a low-carb alternative to mashed potato to serve with stews, grilled meats and sautéed vegetables. It’s full of flavour and just as creamy as its carborific counterparts, and provides a perfectly pillowy base for so many meals. We love using this purée in place of polenta with our garlic mushrooms from Quick Fix: Every Occasion, as a base for our free recipe for slow cooked beef brisket, or served with poached eggs and grilled prosciutto for a filling Sunday breakfast.
We’ve got a delicious Australian truffle oil over at www.theTMshop.com.au
