Cauliflower and Broccoli Mash

I love a good mash as a side to many winter meals; Mum’s lamb shanks, roast beef & gravy, organic farmer sausages, tender beef cheeks and more. But I find the traditional kind a little heavy and lacking in high levels of micronutrients. That’s why I make this lighter, more nutrient dense version which is just as tasty!

Served here with Organic Sausage, snow peas and sauteed red onion + mushrooms

Recipe Type: GF, DF, RSF, V, Paleo

Serves 3-4 people as a side.
Time 20 mins


  • 1/2 a medium head of cauliflower (or use the whole head, and have leftovers)
  • 1/2 a medium head of broccoli (or use the whole head, and have leftovers)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 T EVOO
  • 2 T organic butter or coconut oil
  • 2 t dried or fresh rosemary sprigs
  • handful of your favourite bitey cheddar or parmesan cheese (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Break/cut the cauliflower and broccoli into florets and steam until tender (include the stalks too – they’re full of nutrients and it doesn’t make a difference once all mashed up anyway!).
  2. Transfer to a large bowl with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Use a stick mixer to blend into a mash-like consistency.
  4. Alternatively, combine in a blender or food processor.
  5. Adjust for flavour and consistency (salt/pepper/creaminess).
  6. Serve as a side with your favourite meal!
