CAULIFLOWER AND MACKEREL HOTPOT

This is a warming, comforting dish that is great when healing your gut as it is essentially a purée. The fish provides a good source of omega-3 fats, vitamin D and protein. The gentle steaming of the cauliflower retains all the benefits of this awesome vegetable packed with vitamin B6 and folate, potassium and magnesium. Sesame oil contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and vitamin E.

If fish isn’t your thing, substitute walnuts, or just add them anyway!

Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • Sprig of rosemary
  • 1 tbsp yeast flakes
  • dash of cayenne
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • good pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 whole mackerel, cooked and flaked
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1/2 red chilli, sliced
  • Good glug of sesame oil
  • Handful of toasted sunflower seeds and walnuts
Method

Steam the cauliflower with rosemary until tender. 

Use a blender to blitz the cauli with the yeast flakes, cayenne pepper, curry powder, salt, butter and enough of the steaming water to get a mash consistency.

In a bowl, or the steaming pan, mix together the cauliflower and the mackerel, adjust the seasoning and warm through if necessary.

Transfer to serving bowls and finish with sunflower seeds and walnuts for crunch, spring onion and lemon zest for freshness, chilli for warmth and sesame oil for tasty goodness.

Enjoy 🙂
