Cauliflower, what will you be?

A few days ago, the delivery of my vegetable subscription arrived. Organic vegetables from the region promise short delivery routes and good quality. I like that. From now on, the fresh vegetables are eagerly eaten at every meal. The carrots are quickly gone, the salad, bang, also quickly eaten, the potatoes - it's raclette time again - are also quickly gone.

Well, and after a few days, what can I say, it's usually the less popular vegetables that remain. 😕 I've reached this point now and ask myself, what am I going to do with the cauliflower? 🤔

Let's go

This sauce only needs a few ingredients, plus it's vegan and goes well with any type of pasta.


  • 1 Cauliflower

  • 1 Onion

  • 2 Garlic clove

  • 1 small Leek

  • 1 dl White wine

  • 2 dl Vegetable broth

  • 1 littlebit of Rapeseed oil


  • Roughly chop one onion and two cloves of garlic and sauté in a little rapeseed oil. Put to one side.
  • Wash the cauliflower and cut into small pieces. Fry briefly with a little oil over a high heat, deglaze with the white wine. It steams. It smells good. You are on the right track!
  • Let the white wine boil down a little, then reduce the heat and add the stock. Cover the cauliflower and cook for about 8 minutes. As soon as the cauliflower falls apart under light pressure, it is done. Put the pot aside.
  • Now put on the water for the pasta. I like to use Fusilli or Orecchiette for this dish.
  • At the same time, place the cauliflower in a blender with the onion-garlic mix and blend everything. The mixture should be thick. Then put the cauliflower mixture back into the previously washed out pot and reheat over a low heat.
  • Are you happy with the consistency of the sauce? Then it's good. Otherwise, you can add a little vegan cream, rice milk or hot pasta water. A non-vegan alternative would be milk.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Drain the pasta water. Mix the pasta with the sauce. Serve. Grate the parmesan over the top. Enjoy. Get more. Grate Parmesan over the top. Enjoy.


  • And don't forget: if the sauce is vegan but eggs have been used in the pasta, then it is not a vegan dish. Either make the pasta yourself and don't use eggs or look carefully at the ingredients list of the ready-made pasta. And yes, I always use a non-vegan Parmesan cheese.
