Creamy Leek and Cauliflower Bake with Plant-Based Chee-z Sauce [Lv.intedemiate]

Updated: an hour ago

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables and I often eat it for breakfast as a quick stovetop saute. Incorporation of the study cauliflower with the creamy leek and even creamier plant-based cheese is a perfect pairing combination for an unctuous mouthfeel without the extra calories and fat.
