All in one cauliflower supper

All in one cauliflower supper

Serve with fresh crusty bread to complete this meal. A delicious easy to prepare dish with a creamy sauce, you can ring the changes by swapping the ham for canned tuna or salmon or adding diced salami instead.

Oatly oat drinks are a tasty, refreshing drink on their own and also make a great low-fat addition to a fruit smoothie. And Oatly is heat-stable, so it is also ideal for use in cooking and baking instead of dairy milk or cream. Everyone can enjoy the great taste and health benefits of Oatly.  Oatly is low in saturated fat and contains the soluble fibre required to help lower cholesterol levels:  just one 250ml glass of Oatly provides a third (1g) of the daily requirement of beta-glucans (soluble fibre) for cholesterol reduction as part of a healthy balanced lifestyle for those two out of three UK adults with a raised cholesterol level.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians, Oatly oat drinks come in four long-life varieties (Chocolate, Enriched, Organic and Organic Dairy-Free Alternative to Cream). All Oatly oat drinks are lactose, milk protein and soya free so they’re great for anyone who suffers from milk protein allergy, lactose intolerance and/or an allergy to soya.
