I’m not alone when I say that my favourite way to eat cauliflower is slathered in cheese sauce. Add them to mashed potato and it’s a winning combination.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 medium floury potatoes, peeled and cut into 3 cm pieces, about 1 kg
1/2 small cauliflower, trimmed and chopped into 1.5 cm pieces, about 400 grams
1/2 teaspoon salt, for the cooking water
2 bay leaves
45 grams unsalted butter, chopped
160 grams sour cream
75 grams grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

Method

  1. Put the potatoes, cauliflower and salt in a large saucepan with the bay leaves and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium–high heat and boil until very tender, about 15 minutes, testing with the point of a sharp knife. Drain the potatoes and cauliflower, reserving about 250 ml of the cooking water, and return to the saucepan over a low heat for 1 minute to ensure any excess water has evaporated. Discard the bay leaves. Pass the potatoes and cauliflower through a ricer, or mash until very smooth.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium–low heat, melt the butter and stir in the sour cream until combined. Add the parmesan, sea salt and pepper and stir until the cheese is melted.
  3. Add the sour cream mixture to the mashed potatoes and cauliflower and stir until smooth. Add 60 ml of the cooking water and stir until creamy, adding more water if needed. Taste for seasoning and add more sea salt and pepper if needed.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with parsley to serve.
