Good basic ingredients but I did change the way I cooked this. I am not a fan of microwaved food. Boiled the Cauliflower until Al Dente, then covered with the mustard/cheese/mayo and baked in the oven for 15 minutes. The mustard added a nice twist to normal cauliflower cheese. I would recommend using a good quality dijon mustard as the taste is quite strong.-04 Apr 2010

Made it healthier.I used low fat mayonnaise and half fat cheese to make it a healthier option,without losing the grea taste-03 Mar 2009

very easy, quick and very tasty but agree you only need 3 tablespoons of the mustard but would recommend you give it a try.-08 Sep 2010

Creamy cauliflower cheese with Dijon recipe - Recipes

This creamy cauliflower pasta is so delicious and comforting it’s hard to believe it’s totally #vegan.

Instead of using cheese or cream to achieve that perfectly creamy texture I’ve blended cauliflower and cashews for a silky sauce that is packed full of flavour from nutritional yeast, dijon mustard and veg stock.

I’ve kept my bowl simple but you could top this off with extra roasted cauliflower, cauliflower leaves or even some roasted mushrooms to pack even more flavour and plant goodness into this dish.

My tips for the perfect cauliflower cheese and common pitfalls…

Any hard cheese will work, but cheddar cheese is the classic choice and my absolute favourite.

I like to use the strongest cheddar I can get my hands on and I use a lot of it. Any cheddar cheese with a strength rating of 4 or 5 is good.

I also like to add a bit of Red Leicester cheese for that fiery colour – it’s by no means essential but I love it!

Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese Recipe

I love this cauliflower and broccoli cheese recipe. Cauliflower and broccoli taste great together and they both are perfect with a cheese sauce. So it makes sense that this cheesy broccoli and cauliflower gratin would be so delicious.

This recipe takes a few minutes to put together but is well worth the effort. It’s a great entertaining recipe. Everyone you serve it to will absolutely love it.

If you want to just have a broccoli cheese recipe, simply double up on the broccoli and omit the cauliflower. It’s that easy.

You can make this a bit ahead which is great if you have a lot in the oven for a big dinner. Gratin holds together well and will remain hot for half an hour or so after you remove it from the oven. Keep it covered though.

To make fresh bread crumbs, whirl cubes of day-old bread, including crusts, in a food processor or blender until fine crumbs form.

The Dijon mustard adds just a bit of zip to the broccoli and cauliflower gratin. It’s not overpowering, just a nice hint of flavor.

Alfredo Sauce

This Alfredo sauce recipe is creamy, nutty, and silky smooth! But, thanks to a superstar veggie ingredient, it's so much lighter than the classic version.

If you’re wondering what to make for dinner tonight, this homemade Alfredo sauce recipe is undoubtedly the answer. It’s rich and nutty, with an irresistible velvety texture. It can transform the humblest pasta into an elevated meal, but it takes just minutes to make. As a result, it’s perfect for any occasion, from a busy weeknight to a romantic dinner at home.

Alfredo Sauce Recipe Ingredients

Traditional Alfredo sauce contains four basic ingredients: butter, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Many homemade Alfredo sauce recipes take things a step further, adding heavy cream, cream cheese, and even Italian seasoning to make an extra-rich version of this favorite pasta sauce.

My recipe draws inspiration from both of these camps. I start with the basic butter and Parmesan template. Then, I add these ingredients to create a silky smooth Alfredo sauce that’s bursting with rich flavor:

  • Cauliflower – When cauliflower is boiled and blended, it creates a creamy puree. As a result, there’s no need to add cream to this Alfredo sauce recipe! Thanks to the cauliflower, it’s still thick and velvety, but it’s so much lighter than versions made with lots of butter and cream.
  • Extra-virgin olive oil – Because I use just a small amount of butter in this recipe, I add olive oil for extra richness. I love its robust flavor here!
  • Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and garlic – I add garlic, Dijon, and lemon to give this sauce bright, tangy depth of flavor.
  • Pasta water – In traditional Alfredo sauce, hot, starchy pasta water is what emulsifies the cheese and butter. It’s a key ingredient in my recipe too, helping the cauliflower blend into a luscious puree. If you’re not planning to serve the sauce over pasta, use the cauliflower cooking water in its place.

How to Make Alfredo Sauce

This homemade Alfredo sauce recipe is quick and easy to make, but how you make it depends on how you plan to serve it. If you’re tossing this sauce with pasta to make fettuccine Alfredo, here’s what you need to do:

  • First, cook the cauliflower. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the cauliflower. Cook until it’s tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Then, drain it and transfer it to a blender along with the Parmesan cheese, garlic, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, olive oil, butter, salt, and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Next, cook the pasta until al dente in a large pot of salted water. Before you drain it, set aside 1 1/2 cups of the starchy pasta water.
  • Then, make the sauce. Add 1 cup of the pasta water to the blender, and blend to form a smooth puree.
  • Finally, toss it all together! Add the pasta to a large skillet or bowl and toss it with the sauce. If the sauce is too thick, add more pasta water, as needed, to reach your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!

This Alfredo sauce is also delicious over spaghetti squash, sweet potato noodles, and zucchini noodles. If you plan to serve it with these veggie “pastas,” you won’t have the starchy pasta water on hand to add to the sauce. In its place, use an equal amount of the salted water you used to cook the cauliflower, and proceed with the recipe as written.

It's so easy! One of the best things about this recipe, apart from the fact it's delicious, is that this is such an easy recipe. Scroll down to the recipe card for the detailed instructions. Here are the basic steps:

Prep the cauliflower. I buy bagged cauliflower, so it's already washed and cut into large florets - I just cut it into smaller florets.

Roast the cauliflower. I quickly roast the cauliflower in a hot oven.

Mix with a creamy sauce. Next, I mix the roasted cauliflower with an easy sauce of sour cream.

Bake. I top it with cheese and place in the oven until the cheese is melted.

Garnish. A sprinkle of bacon bits and sliced scallions adds flavor and color to this tasty, pretty casserole.

Cheesy Cauliflower Bake Recipe (Cauliflower Cheese)

Keep leftover cauliflower bake in an airtight container, in the fridge up to 3 days. Heat in the microwave or in the oven before baking.


Yes, follow the instructions until section 5, then but put in the fridge instead of baking and bake before serving.


I used cheddar cheese. But you can use any other type of cheese, or several types combined. You can use any type of cheese that melts: Mozzarella, gruyere cheese, Provolone, Asiago Cheese, Gouda and more.

This is so good that you would never believe it's so easy to make. The mayo, sour cream, and cheese come together beautifully to make a rich sauce. It reminded me of a baked potato topping with a hint of Dijon mustard. I loved the Dijon mustard! I only added 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice. If you add the full amount, it would change the flavor from what I experienced. You kind of have to go with your own tastes. I made this for Thanksgiving and garnished with chopped bacon. It was a hit with everyone that likes cauliflower. Thank you, Bikerfamily, for sharing such a fabulous recipe!
