I quite like cooking, from a creative point of view, but as a Mum of two young girls I just don’t have time to follow actual recipes a lot of the time. Most of our meals are more a case of ‘heating up’; baked salmon fillets, fried mince & onions with veg, eggs every way imaginable.
Because of course cauliflower contains lots of fibre and vitamins as well as being low calorie – perfect for people wanting to lose weight and/or eat healthier.
One of the reasons cauliflower is so versatile is because it’s flavour is very mild, meaning it takes on the flavour of whatever you put with it. That’s why you can use it in both savoury and sweet recipes.
It’s also a great way to sneak more vegetables in – this entire pudding counts as 2 of your 5-a-day!
Caveat – I disagree with the 5-a-day mantra. I think most people would benefit from way more than this. I personally eat around 7-9 portions, including a couple of pieces of fruit.
2 Ingredient Cauliflower Pudding
200g cauliflower, cut into florets
25g your favourite protein powder (Get 5% off with code POLLYH05)
1 tsp xanthan gum (to thicken / bind)
Extra stevia for sweetness
½ tsp Vanilla extract
1 heaped tsp. Cocoa powder
Steam the cauliflower until very soft
Place the cooked cauliflower, protein powder (I used Vanilla Sun Warrior), and any additional ingredients in a blender
Blend to a puree
Can be eaten warm, but personally I prefer it chilled in the fridge
Let me know what you think if you make this (let me know if you can improve on it!)
What’s the best way to cook with cauliflower you’ve found so far? I’m always looking for inspiration!
