Spicy Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheese Bake (Vegan & GF)

  • 1 cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 broccoli spear, cut into florets
  • Dairy free cheese sauce (I used Free and Easy Dairy Free Cheese Sauce Mix)
  • 600mls water (depending on sauce mix used)
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • Kale crisps or plain crisps (I used Crispy Baobab and Onion Kale Chips)

How to make Spicy Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheese Bake (Vegan & GF)

1. Prepare and wash the vegetables.

2. Place the cauliflower florets in boiling water to part boil.

3. Simmer the cauliflower for around 8 minutes.  Add it into a steamer with the broccoli, then steam for another 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender.

4. Whilst the vegetables are steaming, prepare the sauce. You will need 600mls of water to around 8 tsp of the sauce mix I used. (If you use another sauce follow the instructions given). Firstly mix the sauce mix with a small amount of cold water, then add the rest of the water, mixing thoroughly.

5. Sprinkle the chilli flakes to the sauce mix.

6. Pour the sauce mix into a pan and gently heat stirring continuously until the sauce has thickened.

7. When the vegetables are ready, place them into your favourite casserole dish and pour the delightful, cheesy sauce over the top.

8. Next crumble the kale chips over the cauliflower and broccoli cheese bake. This adds texture and added flavour!

9. Place the bake in the oven at 180o degrees for 10 minutes (Make sure you don't burn the Kale chips). You can always place some foil over the top to stop them from burning.

10. After about 10-15 minutes take the bake out of the oven. Be very careful as the dish will be boiling hot!

11. The bake is ready to serve straightaway. I served mine with homemade sweet potato chips and steamed carrots.
