  • 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.
