Cauliflower Fufu | Low Carb, Keto-Friendly Fufu

Cauliflower Fufu | Low Carb, Keto-Friendly Fufu

July 20, 2019 45 By William Morgan


Hey guys!
I’m here again fulfilling my low carb fufu
recipes promises.
Hehehe
If you do not like the taste of cabbage fufu,
then you should go for cauliflower fufu.
Cauliflower fufu has similar texture to cabbage
fufu
but it is tasteless hence much closer to the
taste of classic fufu meals.
Everything I have already said about these
low carb fufu meals is true for Cauliflower
fufu.
Please go check out the other videos for more
information.
The link should pop up on the screen right
now.
Cauliflower is a vegetable and can be purchased
in big supermarkets in Nigeria.
It is quite expensive in Nigeria so if you
don’t want to buy it, prepare cabbage fufu.
I’ll be using 6 florets of cauliflower for
this demonstration.
Cut them into small pieces to help your blender.
I do not add the fibrous stalk.
As always, blend with just enough water to
help the blades of your blender move.
Pour into a chiffon cloth, a muslin bag or
a washed brand new pillow case.
As always, I pile on my mountain of weights
hehehe to help press out the water.
While we are waiting for the water to seep
out,
let me introduce you to the binders.
Cauliflower is gluten free and contains
only 5g of carbohydrates per 100g so I will
be using
psyllium husk to bind the cauliflower so that
we will be able
to mould it into fufu balls when eating.
You can also use xanthan gum.
Please read up on these two ingredients to
make sure
they are good for you before you use them.
After about 30 minutes, un-tie it and put
it in a pot.
When it heats up, keep stirring for 7 more
minutes.
Then add half a teaspoon of psyllium husk.
If you are using Xanthan gum, add a quarter
of a teaspoon.
Keep stirring for another two minutes or till
the cauliflower forms a dough.
Wrap with a plastic film.
This plastic keeps it mouldable,
if you do not wrap it like this,
the cauliflower fufu will dry up and the malleability
will be compromised.
If you are on a strict low carb diet like
keto,
you must serve it with a keto friendly Nigerian
soup,
I’ll put a list in the description of this
video.
But if you are like me, you are not ketoing,
you just want to reduce your carb intake here
and there,
you can serve it with any Nigerian soup for
fufu meals.
Enjoy!
