  • Sprinkle of salt & ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil
Cauliflower Mash
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets
  • 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • salt & ground black pepper (or more or less to taste)
  • nutmeg (or more to taste)
  • sprinkle of cayenne pepper (optional - it definitely adds some heat)
  • handful of your favorite fresh herbs (optional)

  1. Heat oven to 200 c. Toss cauliflower with olive oil. Sprinkle a little salt & ground black pepper over top. Place cauliflower florets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Bake until golden and tender, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a food processor.
  2. Add half the vegetable broth, salt & ground black pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper (if using). (you can add your favorite herbs now too)
  3. Purée until smooth adding a little more vegetable broth if needed. It should have a mashed potato consistency. You can also add a tablespoon or two of vegan butter for richness.
  4. Meanwhile, clean mushrooms and remove stems. Reserve stems for another use or for the mushroom gravy. Brush the mushrooms with the olive oil. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
  5. Place the Portobellos stem side up on a baking tray. They should be soft and juicy . Slice and serve immediately over hot cauliflower mash.
