- 350 g cauliflower, washed and broken into florets
- 2 t fresh cream
- ½ t salt
- 200 g fine green beans, rinsed and tailed
- 1 T extra virgin olive oil
- truffle oil, for drizzling
Bring to the boil a saucepan of lightly salted water.
Place the cauliflower in the boiling water for 7 minutes, or until cooked. Drain and allow to cool.
Using a hand blender, briefly blend the cauliflower, cream and salt to form a thick mash.
Pass the blended mixture through a sieve to remove any lumps.
Steam the beans until cooked, but still crunchy.
In a medium-hot pan, fry the pancetta in the olive oil until golden and crisp.
Serve the beans on a bed of cauliflower purée, sprinkled with warm pancetta and lightly drizzled with truffle oil.

Cook's note: truffle oil is available from Woolworths. If you don't have pancetta, thick slices of good quality bacon will work as nicely.
