Cauliflower Lasagne Bake Recipe

  • 1 large head Cauliflower (cut into small florets)
  • Avocado oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Homemade Tomato sauce (recipe below)
  • 2 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 2 oz Pepperoni slices or pre-cooked bacon bits

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees c
  2. In a casserole dish, cover the cauliflower with avocado oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Arrange evenly in a single layer and roast in the oven for about 25 minutes, until a little golden. If you want the cauliflower browned more evenly, you can toss halfway through. (Leave oven preheated after – you will need to use it again.)
  3. Pour your tomato sauce evenly over the cauliflower. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, then top with Italian seasoning (if using). Place pepperoni slices or pre-cooked bacon bits over the cheese.
  4. Place the casserole back in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden.

Homemade tomato sauce (my cheats way of making it!)

  • 1 can of Italian spiced tomatoes: please make sure you choose a can with real ingredients! No numbers, no preservatives!
  • 1/2 an onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • Avocado oil
  • chopped capsicum (optional)
  • chopped olives or capers (optional)
  • salt and pepper to flavour

Instructions

  1. Chop onion and fry in a little avocado oil with some chopped garlic
  2. Place contents of can of Italian spiced tomatoes into pan and heat through
  3. If too sweet, add some chopped olives, capers or a little salt and pepper to adjust to your preferred flavour
  4. Sauce will naturally thicken and reduce the longer you cook it.

Lasagne: To turn this into lasagne, place half of your cooked cauliflower in a casserole dish to line the bottom. Add a layer of cheese, then a layer of tomato sauce. You can also add a layer of pre-cooked bacon bits. Add the next layer of cauliflower, tomato sauce and finish with more cheese.

Cook until cheese is melted and golden and your dish sounds like a bubbling hot pool!
