A spring vegetable dish that’s creamy, buttery, laced with the perfect amount of herb flavor, soft and velvety with just the right amount of texture, all with just a few minutes of prep.


  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas, plus more for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons organic, grass fed butter* (I like Kerry Gold) (olive oil for vegan)
  • Celtic sea salt & fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh dill or mint


  1. Steam cauliflower until tender but not mushy, about 15 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a food processor. Add butter and salt. Process until smooth.
  3. Remove from the food processor into a bowl.
  4. Drop the peas into the water used to steam the cauliflower. Let sit 2 minutes and drain.
  5. Add the peas to the food processor with the dill, pulse until finely chopped. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Fold the pea mixture into the cauliflower.
  7. Serve garnished with peas and dill.


Use a full flavored cold pressed olive oil for vegan option.
