Citrus Cauliflower Puree

This cauliflower puree recipe stands out from the pack thanks to the inclusion of orange and lemon zest. Try it as a side for any beef dish, especially braised dishes.

  • 1 head of Cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 3/4 cups Heavy Cream + extra as necessary
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest, microplaned or very finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Orange Zest, microplaned or very finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Fresh Chives, chopped



In a saucepan combine the cauliflower, bay leaves, salt & 1 ½ cups of the cream.


Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is tender, adding the additional ¼ cup of cream when the liquid in the pan starts to run low.


Once the cauliflower is tender, remove it from the heat, remove the bay leaves & puree in your blender until smooth (add additional cream if necessary). Add salt to taste


Serve or store in your refrigerator for later use. If storing, gently reheat in a frying pan on the stove before serving.
