  3. When the water boils, reduce the heat and add the cauliflower. Simmer for 10-15 mins. Test regularly with the tip of a knife to make sure they don’t overcook.
  4. In a large mixing bowl mix the beef, scallions, chopped garlic and parsley, egg, nutmeg, allspice, salt, and pepper. Mix very well to combine into a homogenous mixture
  5. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet on high. Shape the meatballs into 1/2 inch thick circles. When the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium and add the meatballs. Cook for 5 minutes per side. Remove from the pan
  6. In the same pan, add the broth, 1/2 cup of the heavy whip cream, and mustard. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the meatballs and simmer on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes more
  7. Puree the cooked cauliflower into a bowl
  8. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a skillet on high heat, then reduce to medium-low. Add the cauliflower puree into the skillet, and add the second half of the whipped cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook (simmer) for 8 minutes, stirring frequently
