Preparation

  1. Clean and rinse your cauliflower and steam for 10 minutes. Place into a pie dish. My dish is 6.5 inches.
  2. In a small pot on a medium heat, sauté the onion, spring onion and garlic in the coconut oil until golden brown. Add a little water (3-5 tablespoons) as you add the stock cube, ensuring that it dissolves.
  3. Add the turmeric and salt, turn off the heat and allow to simmer.
  4. In a blender, add the cashew nuts, and when the onion mixture is cooled down a bit, add it to the nuts, leaving the liquid behind in the pot.
  5. Add the nutritional yeast and olive oil and blend, slowly adding the flavorful stock water from the pot until a smooth, creamy consistency is reached.
  6. Place the steamed cauliflower florets into the pie dish and pour over the cheesy sauce, ensuring all is covered.
  7. Grill for 5-8 minutes, or until golden brown.
