Vegan Cauliflower Cheese Pasta Bake

Vegan Cauliflower Cheese Pasta Bake

Combine two classic recipe favourites: cauliflower cheese and pasta bake in this hearty vegan dinner that the whole family will love.

    1. Preheat your oven to 200°C.
    2. Chop off the cauliflower florets, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper and then spread out in a single layer onto a baking tray. Roast on the top shelf of the oven until golden and tender (15-20 mins). Turning halfway through.
    3. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions, drain and put back into the pan. Drizzle with a little oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.
    4. Put the panko breadcrumbs into a medium bowl and add a dash of olive oil along with salt and pepper and set to one side.
    5. For the cheese sauce, melt the dairy-free butter in a saucepan and add the flour. Cook gently for 2 minutes, then add the Oat Drink a little at time, stirring continuously to get rid of any lumps. Once all the Oat Drink is added, cook over a gentle heat for 5 minutes until thick and glossy. Remove from the heat and stir through the dairy-free cheese and cream then season with salt and pepper.
    6. Transfer the roasted cauliflower, sauce and pasta to an oven proof dish and mix. Sprinkle over the breadcrumbs and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes
    7. Once baked, sprinkle over the yeast flakes and serve.
