Cheesy cauliflower pasta bake recipe

Posted on

This is a great quick and easy meal to prepare in the morning ready for popping in the oven 20 mins before needed. It’s got all that’s needed for a healthy meal for toddlers, children and adults and it’s delicioulsy tasty too!


1 x small cauliflower, chopped into florets, lightly boiled or steamed

Any kind of pasta (I used approx 180g pennoni rigate), pre-cooked and set aside

1/2 pack any type bacon

1 x cup grated cheese

1 x large teaspoon wholegrain mustard


basic white sauce (I would put weights though I never weigh the ingredients, milk, butter and flour are required though I’m sure a shop-bought white sauce would do the trick)


Chop up the bacon and fry in some butter until crispy. Add in the pre-cooked cauliflower and pasta and stir before adding to a dish:

To your basic white sauce add the seasoning, mustard and cheese (saving some cheese for the topping) and stir together. 20 mins before the meal is required, pour the sauce over the pasta, sprinkle with cheese and bake in the oven at approx 200C until piping hot through and cheese has turned golden on top.

Serve with fresh salad or greens.


Tofu stir-fry with ginger and garlic

Posted on

Here’s a quick and easy mid-week meal which my little girl loves plus it’s healthy too and cheap to make as well!


1 x pack Tofu (pressed and cubed)

Wholemeal udon noodles (though any would do) – enough for 3

2 x cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 x clove sized pieces of fresh ginger, finely chopped

1 x teaspoon lemon juice

4 x teaspoon soya sauce

3 x eggs

1 x teaspoon coriander

1 x finely sliced onion

1 x chopped capsicum pepper

1 x cup of chopped mushrooms

Glug of sesame oil

Glug of honey


Add to a pan half of the sesame oil and wait until very hot. Add in some of the soya sauce and cook the tofu until crispy, once nearly done add in some honey and cook for around a minute. Take out of the pan and dry on some kitchen towel to absorb the oil.

Add to the same pan the rest of the oil and whisked egg and cook until scrambled. Add in the rest of the ingredients and cook for a few minutes, add in the tofu at the end once the rest is nearly cooked and serve!
