Sophantastic's Xmas Day 2 - Cauliflower Cheese. Onion Gravy Option. Sold Out Across The UK.

So we all used to love cauliflower cheese, but you think you can't have it anymore?

I have a solution! 

Using Free & Easy cheese sauce - available at Holland and Barrett and Morrisons you can re-create this popular side dish and add it to your roastie on Xmas day. 

- Boil your veggies, you can also include broccoli into this recipe or use broccoli itself it also works really well. 

- Drain your veggies and add to an oven proof dish. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degree C. 

- Boil your kettle and follow the instructions on the back of Free and Easy to achieve the constituency of cheese sauce you want - thick or thin.

- Pour your sauce over your veggies and add to the oven. Bake for 10-12minutes.

-Remove and serve!


Extras; Free and Easy also have an onion gravy that is free-from in their line. This is also a great product to add to your Xmas dinner if you are more of a gravy person than a cheesy one.

It is has the same principle as the cheese sauce in the sense you simply add water to the powder and add as much as you wish to create the consistency you like. 

These products are very much like the 'real' products, so if you are worried about making so many different dishes to accomadate everyone I would suggest that you test these products out in the next week on fam and friends. See if they see the difference and if they like what you serve. If they enjoy the food you have cooked up then I would suggest serving everyone with allergy-free dishes on the day. This will remove a lot of stress, make cooking easier and open the eyes of our fam and friends to these alternatives. 

We are very lucky to have more and more companies creating products so similar to products we used to enjoy but allergy-free. Let's hope this continues to help make our life easier as well as continuing to spread awareness. 

Try this recipes and products and let me know what you think! 

Have a lovely weekend,
