This cauliflower and cheese casserole is a healthy, vegetarian comfort food. This vegetarian casserole recipe is easy to make and delicious! 

This recipe was initially made by my mother and it was absolutely amazing! I’m not a big cauliflower fan, as I find it a bit tasteless, but this cauliflower and cheese casserole was just perfect! It goes perfectly with feta cheese and dill. So simple and delicious.

Dear vegs or non-vegs, you will definitely love this cauliflower and cheese casserole recipe! It has a creamy texture on the inside and a lovely crunchy crust on the outside. It’s the perfect vegetarian comfort recipe. Cheese is absolutely perfect with cauliflower! Hope you’ll give this a try.

[Later edit: I really miss this recipe, now that I’ve stopped eating dairy products. I think you can make it with tofu cream cheese instead (just blend tofu in the food processor until it gets creamy). If you want it completely vegan, maybe you can substitute eggs with starchy mashed potatoes and some psyllium husks. What do you think?]

    Buna Diana!
    Ce varianta ai facut? Cea lacto-ovo sau vegana? Moale este ca textura, insa sta destul de teapana in farfurie, mai ales dupa ce se raceste un pic.

    Am facut reteta acum cateva clipe.A iesit mai putin rumena budinca si ceva mai moale…si-am lasat-o si mai mult de 20 de minute.:(

    Eu am cuptor pe gaz. Nu stiu ce setari se fac la cel electric, dar nu cred ca ar afecta in vreun fel reteta, atat timp cat temperatura e aceeasi. Astept sa imi spui cum ti-a iesit! 😀

  5. Diana

    Clar, o voi incerca!
    Numai o intrebare am : conteaza daca cuptorul e electric?
    Este valabila temperatura pentru orice tip de cuptor?
