SMASH & GRAB : Cauliflower & Broccoli Mash-Up

I was having one of those insatiably hungry days the other day...but was not propoint rich, so I had to think of a satisfying zero pp way to get myself to dinner time.
I scoured my fridge drawer and found a pack of mixed Cauliflower and Broccoli (such a great combo!). With a few extra flavours, this really hit the spot.

Zap in the microwave or steam for 3-4 minutes until easily 'mashable' with a fork.

Squeeze fresh lime juice into the veggies as you mash away.
(I like mine really zingy).

Drizzle with hot chilli sauce for a dose of POW!

I use this M&S one. You can have up to 15ml for 0pp which is loads. Check the pp/kcal of whichever brand you use as they vary enormously, especially the sweeter varieties.

I particularly like this one as it has an ultra-controllable nozzle. 
This reminds me of the Spike Milligan poem about Ketchup...

"When you shake the ketchup bottle,
None'll come and then the lot'll."

Best avoided with chilli sauce!


This yummy little dish kept me beautifully full up all afternoon.


Chilli Lime Divine.



This would be a fabulous accompaniment to some grilled or baked salmon.
