Cauliflower and potato mash


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.
