Low Carb Colcannon (cauliflower mash with kale)

One of my new favourite sides. It gives mashed cauliflower some excellent texture. My sous chef and I had quite the falling out while I was ‘trying’ to make this. I shot her with the spray bottle at least 8 times but she just kept coming. I’m sure you can see she is currently giving me the stink eye in this photo.


1 bunch of kale
1 whole cauliflower
3 garlic cloves
3 tbs of cream cheese (if you please)
150g of butter (or as much as you would like)
1 Tbs coconut oil

  1. Cut up the cauliflower (I just slice it into chunks) and put it on to steam for about 15 minutes, or until fork tender.
  2. Finely chop up the garlic and kale.
  3. Saute the garlic and kale with the coconut oil until mostly cooked – about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Pop the butter, cream cheese and cooked cauliflower into the food processor and whizz until pureeed.
  5. Add the cauliflower to the kale pan and mix it up! Add salt and pepper to taste.

I often cook this earlier in the day and then just reheat ready for dinner! I served this with baked sausages.
