½ a cauliflower
1 small garlic clove
100ml thickened cream
A knob of butter
Salt and white pepper to taste
A pinch of nutmeg to taste



Put a saucepan of water on to the boil with a little salt in it.

Meanwhile, cut the cauliflower into large florets and peel the garlic. When the water is boiling, add the cauliflower and the garlic. Let cook for 10 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.

Drain the cauliflower. Place the warm cauliflower, garlic, cream and butter into a food processor. Process until well combined. Even the best food processors will leave small lumps of cauliflower in your puree. To remove them, pass the puree through a fine sieve.
