This might just be the best creamy cauliflower cheese we've had! Whip up @beatthebudget 's recipe; there's 3 types of cheese, cauliflower for balance, and a subtle but effective mustard kick thanks to Colman's English Mustard. 

  • 6 Minutes 


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 500 g spirali pasta
  • 1 pint skimmed milk
  • 200 g cheddar grated
  • 5 singles of cheese
  • 250 g mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp Colman's English Mustard

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C Fan.

  2. Start by adding your cauliflower florets into a large baking dish. Coat with 1 tbsp of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Pop in the oven for 25 minutes.

  3. Cook the Spirali pasta in salted boiling water for the packet time minus 2 minutes.

  4. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until a smooth paste forms. Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly, until the sauce thickens.

  5. Add the grated cheddar cheese, cheese singles, garlic powder, onion powder, Colman’s Mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the saucepan. Stir until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.

  6. Pour the sauce and the undercooked pasta into the tray with the roasted cauliflower and stir everything together. Tear the mozzarella into small pieces and sprinkle them over the top.
