If you're looking for a new and exciting way to prepare cauliflower, we have the perfect recipe for you: cauliflower crumble. It's a wonderful casserole dish with a creamy heart and crunchy topping, perfect for the whole family.
Our cauliflower crumble is inspired by the classic British recipe but with a vegan and low-fat spin. Although you might have heard or tried the sweet and fruity version of the crumble, veggie-based crumbles are a thing here in the UK. And they're absolutely delicious!
Fruit crumbles and veggie crumbles have the same concept: a soft stewed filling and a crunchy crust. In our recipe, we opted for crunchy cauliflower florets, but many vegetable crumbles often use root veggies instead.
We glazed our cauliflowers with a wonderful white sauce. It's a cross between melted cheese and bechamel, but it's 100% dairy-free and vegan, made with a secret ingredient (that's actually super easy to find!).
But what makes a crumble a crumble is the crust, glorious crust. It consists of butter and flour, rubbed together into a sandy and crumbly dough. Savoury crumbles usually include grated cheese, but we opted for a vegan, no-cheese, and low-fat alternative that combines nutritional yeast with crunchy nuts and olive oil.
Great as a side dish or a main, this cauliflower crumble is full of flavour and texture, so tasty we're sure you'll come back for more. So, are you ready to turn that humble cauliflower into a mouthwatering dish? Let's get started!
