  • > 1 medium cauliflower
  • > 1 tin of large, white butter beans
  • > approx. 1 litre of hot vegetable / chicken stock
  • > 2 tbsp fresh chopped chives or parsley
  • > a grating of nutmeg
  • > salt & pepper (I used white pepper)


    1. Chop the cauliflower into small rough chunks (no need to cut fancy florets... we'll be blitzing them soon)
    2. Either steam the cauliflower, or for added flavour boil until tender in the stock.
    3. Drain and rinse the white beans.
    4. Throw the beans into a food processor, followed by the cooked cauliflower, the fresh herbs, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Blend until smooth, adding a few tablespoons of the hot stock as needed.
    5. Serve & Enjoy! (this is also a great way to "smuggle" some extra vegetables into the diet of fussy children)
