Home Cooking: Marinated Lamb Cutlets with Cauliflower Puree, Green Beans and Oven Roasted Tomato (5 April 2010)


Loving cauliflower puree

How good is cauliflower puree! It's dead easy to make and tastes 300% better than normal steamed cauliflower. Ever since I saw it demonstrated on MasterChef I love making and eating it. All I do is boil up the cauliflower until it's soft then put it in the blender, add some salt, butter and a dash of milk and blend. Goes fantastic with scallops and with my all time favourite cut of meat, lamb cutlets. Lamb cutlets were marinated in my usual lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and herbs but ran out of lemon juice so added a dash of Berri Australian Fresh Breakfast Juice to give it some more liquid — thankfully it did the trick. Tomatoes were oven roasted with mixed herbs, salt, pepper, paprika and olive oil.

I've never tried Cauliflower puree but it does sound fantastic and an easy way to get some different texture on the plate. i'm craving some Lamb now too... definitely on the menu for next weekend!

I am SO using cauliflower puree now!! I love cooking cauliflower with butter until really soft, but never did anything further. So healthy too!! (and less carbs than potatoes hehe - not that You need to worry about that!)

I so need to buy a blender! Or one of them stick ones. Our blender broke and mum hasn't bothered replacing it so I've had to make do with our processor but it just isn't the same.

Yum so easy, I must try this. Funny that I've never attempted cauliflower puree before....

hi mike, once you've tried it you can't go back. it's bliss on the taste buds. you could even do a fancy amuse bouche with it i think. have it in a shot glass with perhaps a bit of chives and a drop of chilli oil.

hi kristy, give it a go. you won't regret it.

hi sarah, i use it instead of mash as well so it has less carbs and it's less guilty on the waistline too. we all have to worry about the waistline these days ;-)

hi anh, sounds like a perfect combo for you too.

hi food wink, HEHE that's so cool. i look forward to your results when you try it. :-) you made me laugh big time.

hi angie, i would have thought a food processor would do the same trick but perhaps not. i don't have a food processor but which i did. be sure to add a bit of milk so it goes more liquid. seemed to help when i blend.

hi brenda, i never knew about it myself until i watched it demonstrated on a MasterChef class. and know that i've made it i sometimes crave it because it's sooo yummy and so simple to make. it makes cauliflower taste even better. you could even do a nice soup with leeks and garlic and maybe even peas. blend it all and have with croutons :-)
