Quick cauliflower cheese


  1. Medium head cauliflower
  2. 3 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
  3. 4 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
  4. 500g pot fresh cheese sauce
  5. A small handful thyme leaves
  6. 4 tbsp dried flavoured breadcrumbs
  7. 25g grated vegetarian Parmesan
  8. If eating as a side dish, serve with grilled pork chops or veggie sausages


  1. 1. Preheat the grill to medium. Break the cauliflower into even-size florets and cook in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 8 minutes, until just tender. Drain well and pile into a 1½ litre ovenproof dish along with the spring onions and sun-dried tomatoes.
  2. 2. Warm the fresh cheese sauce in a saucepan or in a dish in the microwave, according to instructions, then pour over the cauliflower.
  3. 3. Mix the thyme leaves, breadcrumbs and grated vegetarian Parmesan together in a bowl. Scatter over the top of the cauliflower cheese, then pop the dish under the grill for 5 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. 4. If eating as a side dish, serve with grilled pork chops or veggie sausages.
