Cauliflower mash with garlicky greens

1 medium head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small florets
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Four large leaves of swiss chard or kale de-stemmed and sliced into ribbons
1 clove of garlic crushed
2tbsp of olive oil

Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil
Add cauliflower and cook until very tender (takes around 10 minutes)
Whilst the cauliflower is cooking place the garlic and oil into a non stick frying pan and slowly start to cook
As the garlic softens add the greens and and let them soften over a low heat
Drain the cauliflower and put back into the pan
Add oil and milk and mash till soft – towards the end you can beat it with a wooden spoon to get a soft creamy texture
Season with salt and pepper
Ladle the mash onto a plate and gentle place the greens ontop. Pour over any additional garlicky oil and finish with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of pepper
