Cauliflower “Cheese”

My friend Mia has wanted me to make this recipe for a long time, and I thought today would be a perfect day to do it, as I gave blood and so I need a big carb-y comfort meal to recover with :)

I forgot how much I love cauliflower cheese! I added some pasta in to make it a proper meal, but it’ll work just as well without it. Also the sauce is based on a standard cheese sauce recipe, but I used nutritional yeast instead of cheese to give it flavour – dear Mia and other non-vegans, it’s exactly the same with grated cheese, and I hope you like this recipe! I’m gunna keep this post short and sweet today because I’m so worn out I can barely type (you can probably tell, my writing’s terrible today)

Also you can add whatever spices or herbs you want to give it a bit more flavour, but I’ve been feeling a little poorly today because of giving blood and just felt like something plain – maybe tomorrow I’ll add loads of pepper and paprika to the leftovers!

Hope you like it… Now back to revision I go…

Cauliflower Cheese

Cauliflower Cheese


150g of wholewheat pasta

Half a head of cauliflower florettes

Big spoonful of vegan butter

Big spoonful of cornflour

250ml of soy milk

Either one huge handful of grated cheese (if you are Mia) or 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast (if you are a vegan)


  1. Boil the pasta for 10 minutes, and then add in the cauliflower to cook for 5 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Melt the butter, then stir in the cornflower until smooth. Add in the milk and simmer (stirring the whole time) until thickened a bit. Then add the cheese or nutritional yeast and stir until smooth.
  3. Put the pasta and cauliflower into a dish, pour over the sauce and cook for about 20 minutes in the oven until golden brown. Nom.

Serves two (I saved half for tomorrow)

  2. You’ve ow just got me in the mood for a great dish of caulk and cheese. Thinking macaroni would be a perfect addition. And super sure selfie there :-) I know I should, but I can’t bring myself to give blood after being turned down too many times in my past.

  3. I love pasta in my cauliflower cheese, preferably macaroni. Well done for giving blood – it’s such an important thing to do.
