Potatoes are so last year. Cauliflower is the trendier, healthier, low carb alternative you MUST make this Christmas. Trust me, you will be the talk of the party.

Creamy cauliflower gets roasted in the oven until crisp and caramelised, then jazzed up with a quick basil pesto. This dish is packed with texture and flavour – no one will know it’s vegan!


How to make pesto:

Have you ever made your own pesto" It’s super easy! I love making my own pesto so I can control the oil levels by replacing some of the oil with water. This yields a creamier pesto which is oh so GOOD!
To make pesto you will need fresh basil, pine nuts (or walnuts/hazelnuts/almonds), garlic, olive oil, lemon, salt + pepper, and nutritional yeast flakes.

Nutritional yeast are flakes of deactivated yeast with a cheesy, nutty flavour. They make the perfect dairy-free Parmesan alternative in my pesto recipe! If you are not vegan or cannot find nutritional yeast flakes, you can use Parmesan in this recipe instead.
