Recipe Card


  • 1 whole Cauliflower
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • Step 1

    Take a greenery off of the cauliflower and then cut into large florets. You can also use the stem!

  • Step 2

    In a large pot add all of the cauliflower pieces, water to cover the 90% of the cauliflower, and a sprinkle of salt. Cover, bring to a boil, then let it cook for 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    After the 15 minutes are up, check the cauliflower to see that it is fully cooked. A knife should go through without any problems.

  • Step 4

    Drain the cauliflower but be sure to leave about 2-3 cups of water.

  • Step 5

    Add the cauliflower back into the pot along with 1 1/2 cups of water and BLEND AWAY with an immersion blender. If you see that you need more water add about 1/2 cup at a time until you get the desired consistency.

  • Step 6

    Next, add in the olive oil and nutritional yeast. Blend again.

  • Step 7

    Taste it, add salt if needed, and enjoy hot, cold, or my personal favorite with vegan grilled cheese!
