Cheesy Cauli Mash with Sautéed Shrooms

I have a slight fascination with mushrooms if you haven’t guessed already. They’re meaty juicy texture is satisfying and hearty. Served alongside this creamy cheesy cauli mash it’s a match made in side dish heaven!

Serves 1

Cooks in 15 Minutes


  • 1 head cauliflower washed and diced into florets
  • 4 tbsp. nutritional yeast (or parmesan)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 250g mushrooms (I used a mix of shiitake and chestnut)
  • 1 tbsp. coconut amino, Bragg’s amino sauce or tamari (soya alternative)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp. olive oil or water


  1. Start by steaming the cauliflower until tender and drain of any excess water.
  2. Place in a food processor along with the nutritional yeast and seasoning and blend until smooth.
  3. Spoon onto a serving dish.
  4. For the mushrooms, add a little oil or water to a pan over a med-high heat. Once sizzling, add the mushrooms and begin to sauté until wilted and tender, add in the amino, thyme and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Serve over the cauli mash, adding some more fresh herbs and dig in!
