Mustard & Cauliflower Pasta

Ok, so visually - this dish has 50 shades of beige written all over it. But I promise what it lacks in looks it makes up in flavour. Think of it as a very punctuated cauliflower cheese - where the flavours - rather than supreme-cheesiness, sing! It's tangy, fragrant & spiced, yet immensely homestyle in flare. The long ingredient list are mostly pantry *staples* and it keeps well into the week.



  1. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain & set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil & butter in a large fry-pan or pot. Once melted add the cauliflower florets, celery & ginger. Sauté for a few minutes until the the cauliflower is looking somewhat transparent.
  3. Add the unsweetened milk, wine, coconut milk, coriander, lemon juice, mustards, nutritional yeast, spices, stock powder & chilli flakes. Stir to combine, bring to the bubble then turn down to a simmer. Cover with a lid & let simmer away for 3-5 minutes until the cauliflower is tender. Test the stalk to be sure.
  4. Add the cornstarch slurry & stir immediately to thicken the sauce. Turn off the heat, then topple in the drained pasta, spring onions and a generous grind of pepper. Stir the cauliflower sauce through the pasta and let sit for 15 minutes to bask in the flavours. Eat warm or cold. Bon appetito!
