It's not that I hide veggies from my children, it's just that they haven't asked what's in my mash! By adding in some cauliflower into my mash I can get an extra serve of veggies in with our dinner. Potatoes have been given such a bad rap, but they are a great source of fibre and a range of vitamins and minerals. Cauliflower is high in antioxidants and a great source of vitamin C.
