Easy Cheesy Baked Vegan Cauliflower

This Cauliflower is a favorite staple at our house.  The kids just gobble this.  And it’s SO easy.  I mean embarrassingly easy.  😉  Your guests are sure to ask how you made it.  You can just keep them in suspense, ok?  Smile and nod….  

The key to the gentle cheesy taste is the nutritional yeast flakes.  I won’t digress too much on their wonder as a health food since I’ve already touched on their magnificent attributes in other posts, but suffice it to say that the taste plus the vitamins it provides makes it a vegan super-power.  😉

I love that baking stuff is so easy.  Stick it in, set a timer ( a definite must for me) and walk away to change a dirty diaper care for my darlings, or give my attention to other parts of the meal (wait can’t we just live on cauliflower?). 😉  I’m digressing again.  But, the point is, you gotta try this recipe.  You’ll be hooked.  Yum, yum.
