Cauliflower fish pie

Cauliflower Fish Pie

Serves 6 (when served with sides or depending on how hungry you are!)

1 whole medium sized cauliflower
250ml cream
2 tablespoons of butter
1 onion finely diced
2 carrots  and diced
3 large handfuls of baby spinach
1 teaspoon mustard
2 fillets of smoked fish
2 hardboiled eggs, cut into quarters
1 handful of cheddar cheese
handful of parsley finely chopped
salt and pepper

1. Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees C.

2. Remove florets from the cauliflower and steam over boiling water until tender.

3. Place the cooked cauliflower, one tablespoon of butter, 2 tablespoons of the cream, salt and pepper in a food processor and blend until smooth. Set aside.

4. In a large frypan, melt butter and fry of onions and carrots over a gentle heat until soft. Then add spinach, the remainder of the cream, mustard and bring to a simmer. Taste for seasoning. Remove from heat and add chopped herbs.

5. In a large lasagne dish, arrange your chunks of fish and hard boiled eggs. Pour over your cream and vegetables.

6. Carefully spread your cauliflower over the top and then top that with the cheese.

7. Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted.

    Absolutely wonderful rand delicious recipe. Thank you. A revolutionary idea for me to use the cauliflower topping instead of potatoes. I am trying to cut down on carbs so it's perfect. I used creme fraiche instead of cream and I used a 'pie mix' of fish that my fishmonger offers including salmon, smoked haddock and hake. It all worked very well
