Best Plant-based meal: Roasted Cauliflower with Cheesy White Sauce


You don't have to use grain-based pasta. You can use a tool to make noodles or ribbons of zucchini, squash, or another hard veggie. There is even pre-made veggie-based pasta. Make sure to follow the links to find what you need to make a meal. Angel hair pasta in cheese sauce

I watched a video of a woman who roasted a whole, gigantic head of cauliflower and poured a delicious, white, creamy cheese sauce over it. I knew I had to recreate it as best I could. She said it was a good transition into her plant-based lifestyle. Me too!❤🔥
I used turmeric in this because I like the anti-inflammatory benefit of the spice. Use veggie noodles in place of angel hair pasta for an even lighter plant-based meal. 
I used canola oil but olive oil or butter can be substituted. I used red shiraz because that is what I had on hand but white wine is suggested. I used  1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, white and black pepper, flour, olive oil or butter, one cup soy milk (lactose issues) one tablespoon (optional) salt and pepper to taste.  Make a paste of flour and oil and cook for two minutes then add the milk or heavy cream, chicken broth, wine and remaining ingredients or follow instructions for a basic bechamel sauce.  
Add 1/2 8 ounce wheel of brie—rind and all if preferred—1/2 package of cream cheese, one cup chicken broth and 1/4 to 3/4 cup mild cheddar or cheese of choice. Explore and find your flavor profile. Pour over veggies and serve with pasta and or seafood of choice.😁😋
