Broccoli with Creamy Cauliflower 'Cheese' Sauce


  • Sauce:
  • 1 cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1.5 Tbsp.dairy free butter (I used Vitalite)
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • I pkt fresh flat leaf parsley, leaves picked
  • 3 Tsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tsp. onion salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. pepper
  • 3 Heads of broccoli, cut into florets


  1. Boil or steam the cauliflower florets for 10-12 minutes
  2. Drain the florets and put them in a food processor
  3. Put the broccoli on to boil or steam
  4. Add all the rest of the ‘sauce’ ingredients and blend until creamy
  5. Pour the 'cream' over the (freshly) cooked broccoli


This can also be served with wholewheat spaghetti to add carbs but I like it with green olive and tapenade flatbreads

    Nutritional Yeast can be bought in any health food shop? I get mine in bulk from Pillars of Hercules in Falkland.
