Vegan MoFo Day XXI : Cauliflower au gratin & Caluiflower alfredo sauce

Who would like a two-for-one meal?

It’s really easy.  Promise.  Make yourself some of this…

cauliflower au gratin

Just steam your cauliflower until tender, then put it into a baking dish and top with a double batch of your bechamel sauce (or just a simple batch if you’ve got a small cauliflower) and bake at about 200°c for around 20 minutes or until it’s browned and bubbly.  Serve up with a protein and maybe some green salad.

Now you’ve got yourself some left-over cauliflower, right?  What’s to do?  Make sauce, that’s what!

Just put your left-over cauliflower in your food processor and mix it up with an S blade.  You can add some dried herbs if you’d like, maybe some garlic salt…whatever. If you’d like to thin it out just add a little veg broth or water, but mine is usually just fine as is.

Now you’ve got some cauliflower alfredo sauce.  This stuff is really good, kids.  Monsieur Fish has a well-established mefiance towards anything remotely health-foodish, and he really enjoyed this.

Do you have a favourite way to use left-overs?
