  • 4-5 cauliflower florets
  • 2 oz of chicken (50 grams)
  • ¼ Butternut squash


Step 1 – Clean the cauliflower and cut off 4-5 florets.

Step 2 – Add cauliflower to a steamer and steam for about 7 minutes or use a slow cooker (5-6 hours) or a crock-pot (5-6 hours).

Step 3 – Make sure the chicken is skinless, boneless and all the muscles etcetera are removed.

Step 4 – Cook the chicken in a saucepan with boiling water for about 10 minutes. Make sure there is no pink spot left. A white foam might form on top of the boiling water, this is just protein and it is nothing to worry about.

Step 5 – Cut the butternut squash into two equal sections. Remove the seeds in the lower part.

Step 6 – Preheat your oven to 176 C. Place the two equal parts of your butternut squash on a baking tray.

Bake for at least one hour.

Step 7 – Then, scoop out any soft pulp from their skin.

Step 8 – Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor to make a puree or cream. You can add water to thin the puree.
