  1. Start by chopping the cauliflower into florets, and the leeks and onions into slices. Put the cauliflower into a pan of boiling water and cook until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, fry the leeks and onions in Frylight until they're nice, soft and golden. Once the cauliflower is cooked, combine the two in a pot and mix, along with the vegetable stock pot. If you overcook the cauliflower, you'll find that it might go a little mushy. Don't worry, it'll still taste good! (I sometimes find that mixing the vegetable stock pot in a little bit of boiling water in a mug until it's a thickish paste is better)
  3. Once all that is combined, add the cottage cheese and mix until it's... mixed in! Add to a dish and sprinkle over the cheese. Put under the grill until the cheese is golden brown. Eat and enjoy!

  1. Oh my goodness. I was a bit unsure that this was going to work for me with the cottage cheese part of it (love cottage cheese but just wasn’t sure it would add anything to cauliflower cheese), but with Aldi having Cauliflower, Broccoli and Leeks in their super six this week at 29p each, I thought I would give it a go. I used both cauliflower and broccoli, using a whole head of caul and a whole pack of broc. Used just 1 tub of cottage cheese and half tub of quark (cause it’s all I had in the fridge), I also used 80g of the cheese on top as there was so much with the broc as well. Then I baked in the oven for 15 minutes rather than grilling it. OMG it’s gorgeous. Loved it. It worked. So much so that I am nipping down to Aldi to get all the ingredients to make another one for over Easter. Even hubby enjoyed it!

    1. Hi Shelly
      You just add the stock pot straight from the pod, without adding water. The recipe does mention that you could add a small amount of boiling water to create a paste before mixing into the veg if you prefer.

  2. Hi, can you freeze any leftovers?
    I’m loving PON…I’m not doing SW strictly, just being careful with what I eat. For the last week I have cooked something from PON each night and they have all gone down a storm x

    1. Hi Amy
      All our recipes that are suitable for freezing have an ice symbol on the recipe card. Hope that helps!
      Glad you’re enjoying the recipes. 🙂
