Cauliflower Bake : Vegan Style Recipe


Rachel Morrow says ... 'Cauliflower has been one of her favourite vegetables to recreate into new dishes over and over again! It's amazing what you can do with this humble vegetable that too often gets neglected in the bottom of the vegetable drawer.' You may wish to try this vegan style cauliflower bake recipe ...

INGREDIENTS
1/2 head cauliflower, broken into florets
1/2 cup cashew nuts, soaked overnight
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp turmeric (If you don't have any turmeric, a little Moroccan spice mix works well)
1 tbsp. coconut oil, plus a little extra
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
Pinch of Salt


METHOD
1. Lightly steam your cauliflower and then place into a baking dish.
2. In a small pot on a medium heat, sauté the onion, and garlic in the coconut oil until golden brown.
3. Add the vegetable broth, turmeric and salt, allow to simmer on a low heat. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
4. In a blender, add the cashew nuts, nutritional yeast and vegetable broth mix.
5. Blend until smooth and creamy then pour this mixture over the top of your cauliflower in the baking dish, spreading evenly.
6. Grill for 5-8 minutes, or until golden brown.

Sounds delicious. I am guilty of not cooking with cauliflower very often, yet I love it. X

This sounds wonderful. It's been quite a long time since I've had cauliflower, so I should give it a go soon.

This looks and sounds yummy! I just bought a big head of cauliflower yesterday and have all the other ingredients. The plan was to roast it but I think I will try this recipe instead!

I love cauliflower and I usually have it either just plain boiled, or else in cauliflower cheese...but this looks so tasty that I will try it instead.
I somehow think it will be my new favourite!:))
Thank you so much.

Ummm, cauliflower has turned out to be quite a surprise for me. I love making cauliflower fried rice. A casserole would be nice to use the oven and heat up the kitchen a bit. A must try............ Thanks.

Cauliflower is a much underrated vegetable that can be used in so many ways. Any combination of cauliflower and cheese is a winner in my book.

I have to admit, I don't like cauliflower cooked, but this sounds good!
