Ingredients
  • 1/2 a head of cauliflower, chopped in to bite sized pieces
  • 9 swiss brown mushrooms, sliced (you can use white if you can't find swiss brown)
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 tbs of bacon, chopped
  • 1 tsp of olive oil + 1/2 tsp
  • 1/4 of a brown onion, diced
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic (equivalent to one clove)
  • 1 tbs of spreadable cream cheese
  • 40g of soft goats cheese and a further 35g for topping
  • 1 spring onion, sliced for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 205 celcius (400 fahrenheit)
  2. Place cauliflower into a microwave bowl with a lid, microwave on high for about 5 minutes
  3. Stir cauliflower and microwave for another 3-5 minutes - do 3 minutes then check to see if it is cooked. If it isn't pop back for a couple more minutes.
While the cauliflower is cooking:
  1. In a skillet heat 1 tsp of olive oil on medium heat
  2. Add onion and garlic to skillet and fry until just starting to brown, 2-3 minutes
  3. Remove onion and garlic from skillet
  4. Add bacon and mushrooms and additional 1/2 tsp of olive oil and fry on medium-high for about 3 minutes until the bacon and mushroom start to crisp.
  5. Put the cauliflower, 40 g of the goats cheese, cream cheese and the cooked onion and garlic in a food processor and process until you get the texture you want. I like mine quite smooth but you may prepare it a bit more rustic.
  6. Put the processed cauliflower mix in a small casserole dish and stir in cooked bacon and mushrooms and the cherry tomatoes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Crumble the remaining 35g of goats cheese on top.
  9. Pop in the oven and cook until it starts to brown, about 15-20 minutes
  10. Garnish with spring onions.
