Cauliflower cheeze has to be one of the all time comfort food dishes - full of flavour, gooey and perfect for the colder days. We’ve added garlic and Tenderstem broccoli into the sauce mix for extra punchy flavour and veg count! Serve it as the main event with wilted greens and some crusty bread or as a side dish to a veg packed Sunday roast! 

Ingredients to serve 4:

2 cloves of garlic

1 tbsp vegan butter

2 tbsp plain flour

3/4 litre of plant based milk

Whole Roast Cauliflower

This is a brilliant centre piece for a Sunday roast or served with a selection of tasty salads and dips for a delicious dinner!

Ingredients:

Method:

1. Pre-head the oven to 180c / 350f / gas mark 4.

2. Pick off all the outer leaves from the cauliflower and trim the stalk on the base to make sure it can lay flat.
