Creamy cauliflower potatoes

The veggies and starch all in one. It’s really like a warm creamy potato salad. Very very nice.

delicious!

The peas were a last minute addition for colour. As it came together I realised that it was just too white. The little chopped chive bits didn’t pop enough. I’m glad I had the peas, and I’m glad they cook quickly.   

You will want to prepare most of the ingredients first. Have about a cup of peas cooked and ready, 4 garlic cloves grated, the chives washed + chopped and the cauliflower blanched and ready to go.

cauliflower, chopped chives and grated garlic ready

Cut your potatoes and cauliflower to about the same size bits. and have an equal amounts of each.

Start by cooking the cut potatoes in a little bit of oil, salt to taste and water on medium heat

Because the potatoes are cut small into bite sized pieces they will cook quickly. Stir often, and keep covered between stirs. Pay attention to the water levels, do not allow the water to dry off completely, you don’t want the potatoes to start browning. Test for tenderness, when they’re almost done, add the blanched cauliflower and stir.

make sure there’s enough water to last till the potatoes are done, stir, then cover

in a separate small pot on medium heat, add a tablespoon of cooking oil, a quarter cup of water, the grated garlic and chopped chives. Let them simmer for a couple of minutes then add to table spoons of cooking cream and salt to taste. Let that simmer for another minute.

Once the potatoes are done cooking and all the excess water has evaporated (if you have too much you can just drain it) mix in the peas and creamy sauce. You want it to coat everything but you don’t want it to be runny so don’t put too much sauce… or too little! And it’s ready to serve.

Do not mix in the creamy sauce until it’s time to serve.
