Description

This is one of the fundamentals of Banting and Paleo eating. By cheating the eyes you cheat the mind and it starts with lying to your eyes about mashed potatoes. In restaurants cauliflower mash is often served as a fancy substitute to standard issue mash, but this is now standard.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 head (1kg) cauliflower – broken into florets
  • 300ml milk
  • 100g butter
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. 1. Steam the cauliflower until it is mushy. (Never boil your veggies: this literally washes the nutrients away.)
  2. 2. Using a stick blender or food processor, puree the cauliflower until smooth.
  3. 3. Continue to puree, add the milk, then butter and beat until smooth and silky.
  4. 4. Season to taste and serve.

Notes

  • Just like mashed potatoes, you can flavor cauliflower with mustard, wasabi, garlic or other flavor profiles.

Courgette Noodles


Description

Courgette noodles are the best option for Banting or Paleo pasta. They hold their shape nicely and have good flavor. The other great thing about courgettes is that they go well with almost every flavor profile. You really can serve them with anything.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 400g Courgette noodles
  • 2 tsp fine salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. 1. Mix the courgette noodles with salt and leave them in a colander in the sink for about 20 minutes to drain any excess moisture.
  2. 2. Warm the coconut oil in a large pan and add the courgettes. Sauté them for a few minutes until they are just cooked. Then add them to whatever you like.

Notes

  • You could use these noodles as a substitute for any pasta with any pasta sauce in any Asian broth or stir-fry or on their own as a light side with some grilled chicken or fish.
