  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 400 g tin cannellini beans, drained (240g, or ~ 1 ¼ cups, when drained)
  • 100 ml (~ ⅓ cup) single cream
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • ¼ teaspoon Italian mixed herbs
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt
  • Black pepper


  • Remove the leaves from the cauliflower, and cut the head into florets. Spread them out on a baking tray, drizzle with oil, and roast at 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F) for around 15-20 minutes, until fairly soft and lightly charred.
  • Place the roasted cauliflower in a food processor with the beans, cream, garlic and herbs. Blitz thoroughly.
  • Transfer the mixture to a saucepan, and add the milk, butter and plenty of salt and pepper. Cook over a medium heat, stirring regularly, for 5-10 minutes, until piping hot. You can add additional butter, cream etc. if you feel it needs it.
