Grilled chicken with cauliflower and broccoli puree


My fridge was still loaded with cauliflower and broccoli after weekend's visit in local farmer's market. We've already enjoyed cauliflower soup so for dinner this time I made a puree from cauliflower and broccoli. It's basically the same and the soup just with less liquids and addition of broccli and omition of carrot, potato and onion ( but if you can still use if you want more puree-like dish as cauliflower and broccoli are quite liquidy vegetables).

What we need:

for puree:
1 small cauliflower
1 small head of broccoli
3 tbsp of milk
1 glass of water or vegetable stock
salt and pepper
some dried oregano or fresh chopped parsley

for grilled chicken:

2-4 chicken breast
crushed corriander seeds
chilli pepper
salt and pepper

for garnish:
cucumber
red pepper
parsley
some olive oil
salt and pepper
a clove of garlic

What we have to do:
1. Cut cauliflower and broccoli into smaller pieces and place in a pot, pour some water and milk over. Boil until soft, season with salt and pepper, dried oregano. When boiled, pour away most of the water and blend with a hand-held blender.
2. Rub spieces into the chicken breast and grill for 6-7 minutes.
3. Cut peeled cucumber, red pepper into stripes, grate some garlic, season with salt and pepper. Mix with olive oil.
4. In a serving dish put several spoons of cauliflower and broccoli puree, on the top put slices chicken breast, garnish with cucumber and red pepper salad and fresh parsley on the top. Enjoy!!!
