Cheese Sauce GF SCD

I love how cauliflower is so versatile! This grain free cheese sauce is made simply with cauliflower, onions, cheese, salt and pepper and it's surprisingly smooth! 

Cheese Sauce GF SCD

1 cauliflower
100g cheddar cheese
2 medium onions
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Prepare the cauliflower by discarding the core and cutting into florets. Chop the onions into thin slices.
  • Tip the onion and the cauliflower into a pan, pour on some water, bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes or until soft.
  • Grate the cheese.
  • Drain the water from the cauliflower and onions
  • Blend the cauliflower and onions with a hand blender until smooth.
  • Add in the cheese and continue to blend until the cheese has melted.
  • Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  1. I used to snack on cauliflower with cheese sauce. This is even better and you can more veggies in by putting the sauce on them. I can see myself making this one.
