We love cauliflower, like a lot, it’s one of our favourite vegetables to cook with. However since working with it so much, we quickly learned that there are a lot of people that don’t like it. If you’re one of those people – this is the recipe for you. Complex and full of flavour this cauliflower mash will find its way to all the cauliflower-haters’ hearts.
