Servings 4


  • 1 Head cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup Coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup high quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Fresh ground black pepper


  1. Remove any leaves from the cauliflower and chop both the stems and florets into small pieces.
  2. Put in a large saucepan and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes, or until very tender. Drain.
  3. Add the coconut milk and olive oil and mash with a potato masher. For creamier cauliflower, use an immersion blender to puree until smooth. 
  4. Drizzle with more olive oil before serving.
