If you’re looking for a new and exciting way to prepare cauliflower, we have the perfect recipe for you: cauliflower crumbles. It is a wonderful casserole dish with a creamy heart and crispy toppingperfect for the whole family.
Our Cauliflower Crumble is inspired by the classic British recipe but with a twist vegan and low in fat turn. Although you may have heard or tasted the sweet and fruity version of crumble, Vegetarian based crumbles are a thing here in the UK. And they are absolutely delicious!
Fruit Crumbles and Veggie Crumbles share the same concept: a soft braised filling and a crunchy crust. We went with crunchy cauliflower florets in our recipe, but many veggie crumbles often use root vegetables instead.
We glazed our cauliflower with a wonderful white sauce. It’s a cross between melted cheese and béchamel, but it’s 100% dairy-free and vegan, made with a secret ingredient (which is actually super easy to find!).
But what makes a crumble a crumble is the crust, glorious crust. It is made from butter and flour, ground into a sandy and crumbly dough. Savory crumbles usually include shredded cheese, but we opted for a vegan, cheese-free and low-fat alternative which combines nutritional yeast with crunchy nuts and olive oil.
Great as a side or main course, this cauliflower crumble is packed with flavor and texture, so delicious we’re sure you’ll be coming back for more. So are you ready to turn that humble cauliflower into a delicious dish? Let’s begin!
