Cauliflower and Parsnip Mash

Serve my Cauliflower and Parsnip Mash as an alternative to mashed white potato.

This creamy and fluffy, low carb mash is delicious served with a roast, stews, meatballs or use to top Shepherd’s Pie or any dish where mash is needed. By adding parsnips to cauliflower mash you get more flavour and a better texture, as cauliflower on its own is more like a puree.

Serves: 6 | Prep Time: 00:10 | Cooking Time: 00:15

Ingredients

  • 3 (approx 380g) parsnip(s), peeled and chopped small 
  • 1 med head cauliflower, chopped into small florets 
  • 3 – 4 Tbsp coconut cream 
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 
  • Sea salt and black pepper, ground, to taste 
  • Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of parsley 

Directions

Add the parsnip to a large saucepan of simmering water and cook for approximately 5 minutes then add the cauliflower. Cook the vegetables for a further 10 minutes or until tender (cooking time will depend on the size of your vegetables). Drain the vegetables well then add them to a blender or food processor.

Add the coconut cream, olive oil, salt and pepper to the vegetables and blend to a smooth fluffy mash. Taste and adjust your seasoning.

Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.

The mash is also suitable to freeze (I freeze in single serves to make it easy to defrost).
