If you?re not into cauliflower, you could always serve this sauce with some short pasta. Frozen peas work a treat here. The trick is to cook them long enough so they?re nice and sweet and tender. If peas aren?t your thing (I understand completely!) you could use double podded broad beans instead. Or just skip the veg and go for a ricotta-cheesy cauliflower dish. For a dairy-free option, cook the peas in some chilli oil, toss in the cooked cauliflower and finish everything off with a squeeze of lemon and some toasted sliced almonds.
