  • Microwave safe bowl and plate
  • Chopping Board
  • Chopping Knife
  • Saucepan
  • Whisk


  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 60 grams vegan butter
  • 4 tbsp gf plain flour or cornstarch
  • 3 cups plant milk (we used rice)
  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg (or ground)
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup vegan cheese (optional)


  • Cut the cauliflower head into medium sized chunks and place in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with a microwave safe plate and put into the microwave for 15 minutes.
  • While your cauliflower is in the microwave, it's time to make the white sauce. Melt 60 grams of vegan butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Whisk in the gf flour, salt. pepper and nutmeg until well combined.
  • Slowly add in the plant milk a 1/4 cup at a time turning the heat back up to medium-high. Whisk constantly to make sure the sauce doesn't stick to the bottom. The sauce should thicken within about 5 minutes. If you need to, add in more flour, just make sure you mix it with a little water in a cup or bowl first to get out the lumps and then add it to the sauce.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Place pre-cooked cauliflower in little separate ramekin dishes or a large casserole dish (both will work fine) and pour the white sauce over the top. Top with gf bread crumbs and vegan cheese.
  • Place in the oven uncovered for about 10 minutes or until the crumbs are golden and crispy and the cheese melted.
