PASTA AL FORNO WITH VEGAN CAULIFLOWER ”BESSAMEL”

Today I make a pasta different from what I’m used to. I experiment with cauliflower to make a delicious bessamel textured cream and mix it with sautéed onions and mushrooms.

Super alternative if you want to add vegetables to your diet and to the festive table!

Ingredients

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 400 gr fusilli pasta
  • 5 ml truffle oil
  • 250 gr mushrooms, coarse (whatever kind you prefer)
  • 2 white onions

  • 1 tsp. paprika smoked
  • 1 tsp. tabasco
  • 1 tsp. curry
  • 1 tbsp. black sesame
  • olive oil for sauteing

  • Once it is boiled it is pulverized with an immersion blender until it has a cream texture.
  • Add the truffle oil, tabasco, paprika, curry and salt to the cauliflower and mix.
  • Boil the fusilli until it is al dente
