    Salmon fish pie (cauliflower puree substitute)

    Salmon fish pie (cauliflower puree substitute)

    A good way to get more vegetables into your daily diet is by thinking of alternatives ways to substitute them in and perhaps 'hiding' them in meals. So I decided to make a fish pie but instead of making a white sauce, I thought I would steam and blend cauliflower into a puree and use this as the base for the sauce and it was delicious. I have done the same with macaroni cheese before - by replacing the white sauce with cauliflower puree.

    Ingredients (to feed a family of 5)

    4 chicken breasts

    160g spinach

    200g mushrooms, sliced

    1 onion, sliced

    3 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped

    150ml single cream and couple of spoonfuls of creme fraiche (you can use either/or)

    Prep time: 5 mins

    Cooking time: 10 mins

    Put some pasta on the go whilst you then prep and cook the rest of the meal.

    Chop up the chicken into chunks or strips and mix with potato or cornflour.

    Heat up a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a pan, add onions and garlic and cook for a 1-2 minutes.  Add the chicken and cook for around 3 minutes stirring as you go. 

    Add mushrooms and cook until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. 

    Once pasta is cooked, drain and pour straight into the pan with the chicken and stir in the spinach until wilted. Add seasoning if you wish.
