Cauliflower White Sauce

This is a fab cheats’ béchamel / white sauce. A quick and simple white sauce that’s healthy; a great hidden veg recipe! Use for all sorts of baked pasta’s such as lasagne, ravioli, cannelloni and obviously, for broccoli and/or cauliflower cheese bake.

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 pint of milk
  • 100g grated parmesan
  • 100g cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard powder (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Chop the cauliflower into florets, you can also use the stem, discard the leaves
  2. Place them into a saucepan and pour in the milk
  3. Boil very gently for about 15 minutes, be careful not to let the milk boil up
  4. When the cauliflower is tender remove about a 1/4 pint of the milk from the pot and set aside. It’s better to remove too much than too little as you can always add to it if it’s too thick
  5. Then add the salt, pepper, parmesan, cheddar and English mustard and blend with a hand held blender until smooth and creamy – if it’s too thick then add a bit of the milk you set aside  earlier 
  6. Use as a topping for a baked pasta or cauliflower/broccoli cheese bake or even as an alternative to a creamy pasta sauce.
