Creamy Cauliflower Tagliatelle

Cooking the cauliflower two ways gives it contrasting textures and tastes, creating a vibrant pasta dish.


  • ½ cauliflower, chopped into chunks
  • 1 mug of almond milk
  • handful of dried tagliatelle
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Keep some nice-looking small cauliflower florets to one side for the topping.

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the cauliflower chunks and cook for about 10 minutes until soft.

Drain the cauliflower then blitz in a food processor, along with the mug of almond milk and a generous pinch of salt and pepper, until smooth.

Meanwhile, season and pan-fry the florets in a glug of olive oil over a medium heat for about 6 minutes and cook the pasta in a pan of salted boiling water until al dente.

Drain the pasta and mix it with the cauliflower sauce, transfer to a plate, top with the pan-fried florets, drizzle with a generous glug of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to serve.
