Cauliflower sweet potato mash-up
Transform dinner with this cauliflower sweet potato mash! It’s the same sweet potato flavour you love, but pumped up with the nutritional value of cauliflower. Boil 2 cubed peeled sweet potatoes until tender, about 8 minutes, adding 2 cups frozen cauliflower florets during the last few minutes of cooking. Drain, then purée with knobs of butter and a generous pinch each salt and pepper until silky-smooth.
Blitz together an easy veggie dip that’s perfect for a Mediterranean-style mezze platter, after-school dipping, or as a veggie-forward addition to a game-day snack spread! To make, blend 3 cups of thawed, cooked cauliflower with 2 tbsp of tahini, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a large pinch of salt and—voilà—vegetarian hummus is served. Tip: Drizzle generously with olive oil and garnish with toasted sesame or sunflower seeds for a crunchy addition before serving.
