Mashed vegetables are easy to make and great when trying to get your kids used to a veggie they wouldn’t eat if they saw it… Well, cauliflower is definitely one of them. I won’t tell names but I even know adults who say they don’t like it and loved my mashed version
Preparation time: 5 minutes – Cooking time : 15 minutes
Ingredients (for 4 servings)
4 big potatoes
1/4 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of butter

1/2 teaspoon of four spices mix (2 mesures of cinnamon, 1 of ground clove, 1 of ground ginger, 1 of grated nutmeg)
1/4 teaspoon of curry

3/ Put potatoes and cauliflower in a large saucepan. Cover with water and add salt. Get to a gentle boil and leave for 15 minutes or until potatoes and cauliflower are tender.Boiling water for vegetables should always be very salty.
