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 amazing!

What can be used instead of the Feta cheese?

You could also use smoked tofu (previously processed to a creamy texture in the food processor), or any other type of soft cheese.

I have not heard of teleme cheese. What can I substitute for it? thank you.

It's similar to feta cheese. :) You can use goat cheese as well.

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

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.

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


Monday 9th of March 2015

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! :D
