Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Cook the pancetta until crispy in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer to a small bowl.
  2. While the pancetta is cooking, bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil, over high heat. Add the cauliflower and boil for 6-8 minutes until the florets are tender, yet retain a semi-firm texture. You can test this with a fork. Strain the cauliflower in a colander and discard the water.
  3. Mash the cauliflower and sour cream together until smooth. You can also use a food processor or an immersion blender.
  4. Season with white pepper and salt to taste. Fold through the parmesan, chives, and reserved crispy pancetta.

Tip

You can use thick-sliced smoked ham in place of pancetta if you wish.

    What does “fold through the parmesan and chives…” mean?

    Hi, Eva! It basically means to gently combine a lighter ingredient with a heavier one. So, carefully mix the parmesan, chives, and pancetta into the cauli mash.
