Cauliflower mash with herbs and soft boiled eggs

Posted by

Steamed cauliflower mash with loads of herbs and drizzle of chili oil. The soft-boiled egg adds some texture and contrast. I am not sure if it can be called a mash, as the consistency is different. Yet, it has an irresistibly creamy texture.

The taste of cauliflower mash is enhanced with the herbs, garlic, and chili.
Working moms with smaller kids can save a lot of time with these easy recipes. These quick, blender friendly recipes save a lot of time in the kitchen and are healthy too. Steaming veggies is one of the easiest and healthy ways of consuming them.
It’s a cozy, light dish, and I make it almost every winter with a twist here and there. Turkish eggs partly inspired the soft egg and chili oil. I hope you do try this simple, hearty dish.
