Cauliflower Cheese, Everyone’s Favourite At Any Time Of The Year!

cauliflower cheese

If you are a regular reader here, then you’ll know that I really REALLY like cauliflower! I guess my favourite thing to make with them is cauliflower cheese. Though I got to admit, I do like making a spicy hot curry with them from time to time. However, for today, I’ll be sticking with cauliflower cheese recipes, nice and easy ideas that you can enjoy at any time of the year.

Lets start with a cheap to make recipe from Jamie Oliver. For his version he uses frozen florets, which should fit most peoples budgets and is also rather quick to make. Great as a mid-week meal or a weekend special.

Of course there are many other recipes out there, so lets take a look at a few. My choices include a vegan version and a low-carb pureed cauliflower sauce version…

Low-Carb Double Cauliflower Cheese – Scrumptious South Africa

I love cheesy cauliflower cloaked in bubbling white sauce, but not a morsel has passed my lips since I started my low-carb regime last year. Then it occurred to me – why not make a ‘white sauce’ from puréed cauliflower? I did, and that’s why I’ve called this new recipe Double Cauliflower Cheese. It’s also doubly cheesy, with a topping of both Cheddar and Parmesan.

Golden Cheezy Cauliflower ‘Cheese’ – Mouthwatering Vegan Recipes

This is the best vegan cauliflower cheese in the universe – no joke, it’s too good to be true, and extra moreish. You can also use a little mustard, and dip your cauliflower in it (I love Frenchs American Classic) – I will leave you be the judge of these. Feel free to substitute broccoli instead of cauliflower. Serve with your favourite salad, or as an accompaniment for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or a special dinner.

Perfect cauliflower cheese with bacon and mushrooms – The Hairy Bikers/BBC Food

Parmesan crumbs provide a fantastic crunchy topping in this recipe, which is hearty enough to work as a main course

You’ll notice that most recipes seem to use the white cauliflower, called white because of the colour of the curd (the big bit you cook). However there are also orange, green and purple curd varieties. It would be rather interesting to see the above recipes made with different colours, purple cauliflower cheese anyone??
