Vegan Cauliflower Cheese


Serves: 2-3 | Cooking time: 45 minutes | Skill: Moderate

This reminds me of going to my sister's as she always makes this for the kids so I promised her one day I would make a healthy alternative for her and here it is! This is vegan however you can add cheese instead of the nutritional yeast. The nutritional yeast gives it that cheesy flavour.


50g vegan butter
50g white gluten free flour
600ml rice milk (or dairy free milk)
½  tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
3 tbsp nutritional yeast (or 125g hard goats cheese for non vegan)
2tbsp ground almonds (or 25g hard goats cheese for non vegan)
330g cauliflower


    Pre-heat oven to 175 deg fan

    1. Chop the cauliflower into bite size florets.
    2. Part boil or steam the cauliflower until it still as a bite to it (not quite soft) Boiling takes about 2 minutes and steaming takes about 5 minutes and put to one side.
    3. On a low heat melt the butter and slowly add the flour and whisk to make a roux.
    4. Gradually add a quarter of the milk to make a paste.
    1. Add the remainder of the milk and stir in the salt and pepper and nutritional yeast.
    2. Whisk over a medium heat until the sauce starts to thicken. This will take 3-4 minutes. (add goats cheese now if you are going for this option)
    3. In a small baking dish put the cauliflower in the bottom and pour the white sauce over the top.
    4. Sprinkle the ground almonds over the top or the rest of the goats cheese and put into the oven for 30-40 minutes until golden and cauliflower is soft.
