If you don’t know by now from reading my blog, I love cheese sauce and pasta bakes are my life! I spent nearly ten years as a vegetarian and there was nothing better than having macaroni cheese for dinner.
In fact a cheese sauce was the first thing I could ever make (back when I was 12) and according to my son Kyle, lasagne is my signature dish. I remember when I used to make a cheese sauce it was always so simple. You knew that you put equal amounts of flour and butter in a pan, followed by milk until it is nice and creamy, that you would have success.
You would then just add cheese or whatever flavour of sauce you wanted and everything was then amazing.
Add pasta and you were done!
But now with a lot of people following a gluten free lifestyle we are all looking for another way to do it and this is when my flourless cheese sauce came about. Instead of the typical flour your base is the healthy cauliflower. It tastes amazing and adds great flavour to the dish. It can also deal with changes so is easy to adapt for a white wine, mushroom or even fish sauce.
This sauce can also be made so much easier and quicker with the help of my soup maker and it is quicker than the traditional flour based cheese sauce that as a cheese loving world, was top of the agenda.
