Roasted Cauliflower Cheese (Dairy and Gluten Free)

Roasted Cauliflower Cheese Recipe

This delicious roasted cauliflower cheese recipe is dairy free, gluten free and uses butter beans as a base. This means it’s high in both protein and fibre. A great comfort recipe that is low in carbs, low in fat and free of oil. If you want a creamer cheese sauce then you can add a few tbsp of a cold pressed oil.

The cauliflower is dry roasted to give a golden colour and a grilled taste. As no oil is used you need to keep a sharp eye on the oven when the cauliflower roasting so it’s taken out at exactly the right moment. If the cauliflower starts to burn this can give a bitter taste. You can steam the cauliflower if you prefer, but I think roasting it gives a better taste as it’s less watery. Whole sesame seeds are used to give a creamy sauce but they also add calcium and magnesium to this dairy free dish.

The sun-dried tomatoes add salt to the dish. If you don’t have any just replace with a pinch of salt. Serves 2 as a main or 6 as a side dish.
