Cheese and Garlic Cauliflower Mash & the Best Grain Free “Breadcrumbs”

Man if you think you love Mashed Potatoes then you will LOVE Cauliflower Mash! I first made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and we were in such a hurry to devour it that there was no time to take a photo and post the recipe! Its a perfect sub with Bangers and Mash or alongside a Stew. Even if you think you don’t like Cauliflower you should give this a try!

You will need:
1 small head of Cauliflower
1 heaped Tbsp Cream Cheese
1 heaped Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Grated Cheese
2 Cloves of Roasted Garlic or 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
Sea Salt and Pepper
Parsley

Cook your Cauli any way you prefer – Boil, Steam, Bake. Drain and add back into the empty hot saucepan to steam away any moisture (obviously not if you have baked your Cauli)
Add into your food processor with remaining ingredients and blitz until smooth and creamy. Topped with some fresh chopped Parsley and enjoy! We had ours with some Crumbed Beef Schnitzel and Green Veg.

Here is my mix for the best Paleo “Breadcrumbs” Perfect for making Chicken Kiev’s or Other types of Stuffed and Crumbed Chicken Breasts, Coating Schnitzel, Coating a Fish Fillet or maybe making Homemade Chicken Nuggets!
Feel free to increase the amounts, just use a 2:1 ratio of Almond Meal to Ground Flaxseed
2 Tbsp Almond Meal
1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed (Linseed)
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
Sea Salt and Pepper
Fresh or Dried Herbs/Spices (optional) Perhaps Dill if you’re crumbing Fish, Smoked Paprika for homemade Chicken Nuggets

Tip it all onto a plate and mix it together to combine, then dip your Chicken or Other meat in a bowl of Beaten Egg, Shake of the excess and then finally Coat each side with the Crumbs. If I am crumbing Fish I just dip it in a bowl of Milk rather than Egg. I don’t know why. I just do!

For 10 Savoury mini muffins you will need:
1/2 Celery Stalk – Finely Chopped
1/2 Onion – Finely Chopped
1/2 Carrot – Finely Grated
3 Garlic Cloves – Crushed, Peeled, Diced
2 Tbsp Finely Grated Cheese
Chopped Parsley
1 1/2 Tbsp Coconut Flour
1 1/2 Tbsp Almond Meal
1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed (Linseed)
Himalayan Salt and Pepper to taste
4 Free Range Eggs – Beaten
10 tsp Cream Cheese

Quite simply add your Veges, Grated Cheese, Parsley and a generous amount of Himalayan Salt and Pepper into a bowl. Next add your Coconut Flour, Almond Meal and Ground Flaxseed and stir well to combine. Finally add your eggs and whisk it all together.
Pop a Tablespoon of the Muffin Mixture into a Muffin Mould, followed by a teaspoon of Cream Cheese and then another Tablespoon of Muffin Mixture to cover the Cream Cheese. Repeat with the rest of the Muffin Moulds and then bake at 180°c for 15 minutes. You must try one hot out of the oven, then pop the rest onto a wire rack to cool.

Enjoy!
