Low calorie cauliflower cheese

There’s one food I miss and that’s cheese, I love cauliflower cheese. Recently I was introduced to Engevita, nutritional yeast for making savoury cheese like dishes so I thought I’d have a go at making a low calorie cauliflower cheese. I’ve worked out the calorie content as 260 calories for a good plateful. And this amount of sauce could easily take more cauli if you prefer.

20g Engevita
1 tablesp cornflour mixed with a little milk

Put the cauliflower florets in a pan with the milk, seasoning and the stock cube, put on the lid and simmer until tender

Drain the cauliflower and put in a dish, add the engevita to the milk and stir, then add the cornflour mixed with the milk and whisk until thickened, let it bubble a few minutes then add half the grated cheese and pour over cauliflower then sprinkle on the remaining cheese.

      Hi Kym, this is less rich than a conventional cauliflower cheese but it’s a good substitute and if you aren’t watching your weight you could add more cheese to the sauce and topping.
