Cook Time10 mins
Servings: 4 side servings
- 200 g/7oz • baby spinach
- 1 • small cauliflower head [cut into florets - about 350g/12oz]
- 1 • small onion [diced]
- 1 • minced garlic clove
- 1/2 cup • shredded mozzarella [plus a little more for on top]
- 2 tbsp • heavy cream
- 1 tbsp • butter [for the cauliflower]
- 1/2 tsp • nutmeg
- pinch of ground cloves
- to taste • salt and pepper
Turn on broiler.
Bring a medium pot of water to the boil. Once it starts to boil, add the cauliflower florets and boil for 10 minutes.
While the cauliflower boils, caramelize the onion in a little bit of butter and oil [butter for flavor, oil to keep it from burning] until soft and and then add the spinach, nutmeg and cloves and cook until wilted.
When the cauliflower is cooked, use a slotted spoon to scoop the florets into a food processor. Blitz the cauliflower until smooth with the cream and butter. Season with salt and pepper.
Now mix the cauliflower, spinach/onion and cheese together, adjust seasoning if needed, and scoop into a cast iron pan or small baking dish.
Slide under the broiler until the cheese is golden brown.
