Parsley has a strong aroma and flavor. I am not a big fan of this herb. However I know it has immense nutritional value. But in this recipe I couldn’t taste it as strong and I just loved it. Finally, I can now enjoy Parsley. I am super happy that I found a way to cook fresh parsley that we can all like it.
For this, I first boiled some raw cashew nuts. The purpose here was to quickly soften the nuts. Then in a food processor I decided to grind the cheese sauce ingredients into a smooth and creamy paste. This cheese sauce smelled so delicious that it was hard to keep myself away from licking it now and then.
Well, I controlled myself and combined cauliflower florets, fresh Italian parsley and some salt in a bowl and mixed gently. Then, I added very little water to it and microwaved for few seconds. The purpose was to soften the cauliflower and remove the raw taste of it. Thereafter, I arranged the cauliflower florets in the baking pan and poured the cheese sauce over it. Lastly, topped it with some more fresh parsley and baked it in a preheated oven for 35-40 minutes. Feel free to garnish with more fresh parsley after baking. We aren’t fond of the strong taste of raw parsley so I preferred to cook parsley and served it as is.
Now, just enjoy it and store the leftovers in the refrigerator for later use in the week. Just warm it up in a microwave or bake it again in the oven. I can guarantee that Vegan Cheese and Parsley Baked cauliflower will definitely win your hearts.
