“This is the best creamed cauliflower recipe”, told me, my husband, after tasting what I cooked. Indeed, although it is a delicious and healthy dish, it has hardly made its place in our menus.

If in Western cuisine, cauliflower cream is a side dish, substitute or variant instead of mashed potatoes, in Eastern Europe it is rather a substitute for spreadable creams and spread on bread. We consume it as the egg salad sandwich recipe, another delicacy from our blog.

It is a simple and easy to make recipe, but very delicious. Let’s start with ingredients!

Ingredients From the Best Creamed Cauliflower Recipe

We need cauliflower first, I chose to buy a whole fresh cauliflower, larger in size, about 1 kg. But you can also use frozen cauliflower cut into florets.

And I also used a leek, because I preferred not to put garlic in this recipe.

The rest being sea salt, freshly ground pepper, vegetable mix, English mustard and mayonnaise.

Preparing the Ingredients

I start with the cauliflower that I cleaned of the leaves and I broke it into florets. If you have frozen cauliflower, you do not have to do this.

In a soup pot, boil about three litres of water with a tablespoon of salt. When the water has started to boil, put the cauliflower florets in the pot.

Boil the cauliflower for about 15 minutes, then put it in a strainer and let it drain and cool.

I chopped the leek finely, but you can chop it coarser because I will pass it through the electric chopper anyway.

Now we take out the electric chopper and start making the cream.

How to Make the Creamed Cauliflower

First, we put the chopped leek in an electric chopper over which we put the boiled cauliflower, as much as it fits, and we start to chop.

Stir, then add another tablespoon of English mustard and two tablespoons of mayonnaise. If you don’t want to put mayonnaise, it can be replaced with Greek yoghurt, but I prefer mayonnaise.

Serving the Dish

As I said, it can be served as a side dish, for example near turkey meatloaf or oven-roasted turkey thighs but we prefer to eat it spread on bread, for breakfast with some salami or sausages and tomatoes.
