Cauliflower is a vegetable that I've kind of neglected lately, but did you know how rich it is in vitamins (C, B3, B5 and B6, phosphorus and potassium), fiber and protein? Besides the fact that it contains very few calories, it is also very beneficial for health by the fact that it produces antibodies and hemoglobin and protects us against asthma, allergies, migraines and depression. It has properties to improve skin health, helps maintain energy levels and balances the concentration of fat in the blood, and is often consumed as an adjunct to treat allergic rhinitis, asthma and inflammatory bowel disease or depression and anxiety.

An additional advantage for cauliflower is the fact that it is prepared very easily and quickly, most of the time being even indicated to be cooked as little or not at all as possible in order to maintain its nutritional qualities and crunchy texture.

Yes, I know, there are some of us who don't prefer it because it doesn't taste good, but that's exactly what I think is a big advantage. It can be combined with a lot of herbs and spices, being delicious as such in salads or breadcrumbs, extremely tasty baked, plain or au gratin, but also in dishes or garnishes such as this fine and creamy cauliflower puree that I enjoyed it the next day with a sheet of cod cooked for the first time in a vacuum.


  • 300 gr. cauliflower (about half an average piece)
  • 150 ml. milk
  • 90 gr. butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 white pepper powder
  • 1 nutmeg powder
  • juice from half a lemon

Preparation method:

How to prepare the finest and creamy cauliflower puree

1 Prepare your ingredients close and a vertical or hand blender because this puree is ready in no time. It almost takes longer to prepare the small bunches of cauliflower that you separate to boil quickly and evenly. You can chop them with a knife, but I think they would break too hard and it would be a shame.

2 Put the milk and half the amount of butter in a saucepan to boil, then add the prepared cauliflower. Season with a pinch of salt, white pepper and a little nutmeg, cover with a lid and bring to the boil. Reduce the temperature to a minimum, then let the cauliflower cook for about 15 minutes. You will notice that it is quite well done by changing the color which becomes a little translucent or you can prick it with a knife for checking.

3 Drain the remaining milk in a bowl and put the cauliflower in a blender with a cube of butter and mix well, using, if necessary, 2-3 tablespoons of hot milk.

4 At the end, gradually add the juice from half a lemon so that it suits your taste and continue mixing until you get the creamiest and finest cauliflower puree you have ever eaten.

It goes very well with fish, next to which I used it today as a garnish, but you can use this quick and easy method to prepare other equally tasty purees from peas, broccoli, carrots or celery, especially since they are much healthier than the mashed potatoes we use quite often in addition to everyday dishes.

The cauliflower is washed and cut into pieces, if you have chosen the already frozen cauliflower this step is already done. Put in a pot with water and salt, completely covered and leave for 15 minutes from the moment it starts to boil. Be careful not to let the cauliflower cook too long as it softens too much.

While the cauliflower is boiling, cut the onion into small pieces, the cheese into cubes (or cheese), and the eggs are mixed together with the sour cream. After the cauliflower has boiled, remove and drain in a sieve or other bowl. Turn the oven to 180 degrees, let it heat up, and during this time grease a ceramic or yena bowl with butter.

Baked cauliflower recipe

Ingredients for baked cauliflower:

  • Boiled cauliflower
  • 1-2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 3 eggs
  • A tablespoon of dried oregano
  • Salt, pepper and paprika.

Cauliflower bread in the oven

How to prepare baked cauliflower:

Cauliflower is washed, cleaned, boiled and broken into bunches. Beat the eggs in a bowl, add the paprika, salt, pepper and half the amount of oregano. Mix all the ingredients until you get a homogeneous composition.

In another bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with salt, pepper and oregano.
Now, each bunch of cauliflower is passed through the egg mixture, then through the breadcrumbs mixture and placed on baking paper in the baking tray. All the cauliflower bunches are put in the oven for about 40 minutes, at 160-180 degrees.

When the breaded cauliflower has turned golden to brown, it is ready.

We open the cauliflower, the bouquets that we boil in the water in which we put 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the cleaned garlic cloves.

When it is cooked, we strain it and put it in the food processor (blender) together with the rest of the ingredients. Mix until the composition becomes creamy and if necessary add sour cream. Serve with a lean meat over fish or chicken. Or you can simply serve it instead of mashed potatoes as a garnish.

Cauliflower puree

It looks like mashed potatoes, but it's not dangerous at all for the figure. The taste of cooked cauliflower may not be to everyone's liking, but butter, sweet cream and parmesan ennoble the final taste of puree. We like it a lot. It goes as a garnish for any steak or fish, or simply, accompanied only by a salad of vegetables.

  • 1 cauliflower of about 300 g
  • a cube of butter (25 g)
  • 50-70 ml sweet cream (30-35% fat)
  • salt, pepper, grated nutmeg
  • 2-3 sprigs of dill or green onions, optional
  • 1-2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese

The cauliflower is washed, the bouquets are opened and steamed. I use a sieve put in a pot of water. Boil for about 15-20 minutes, test with a fork.

Meanwhile, heat the cream in a kettle.

When the cauliflower has boiled, move it to a bowl and pass it through the vertical mixer, adding the butter and cream a little at a time, until it reaches the desired consistency. At the end, add the grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste. When serving, sprinkle with finely chopped dill or green onions. Serve immediately.
