  • 1/2 head Cauliflower
  • 100 ml Soy Milk or dairy-free milk of choice
  • 3 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/3 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice
  • pinch Nutmeg
  • pinch Black Pepper
  • 150 grams Pasta I used tagliatelle
  • Fresh Herbs optional, to serve


  • Break the cauliflower into small florets. Add to a bowl with a little water and steam in the microwave for about 7 mins until tender. The softer the cauliflower, the easier it is to blend.
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to packet instructions.
  • Add the cauliflower, soy milk, nutritional yeast, salt, lemon juice, nutmeg and black pepper to a blender. Blend the sauce until smooth and creamy.
  • Drain the pasta and stir in the sauce. Serve hot, topped with fresh herbs.


  • You could use Almond Milk instead of soy.
  • If reheating the pasta, add a little water as the sauce naturally thickens over time.
