  • 50g butter

  • 1 onion, diced finely

  • 2 Tbsp. brown rice flour

  • 1.5 Cups. milk of choice 

  • 1 Cup. grated cheese

  • salt & pepper to taste

  • 425g tin of tuna in spring water, drained & flaked

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower

  • 1/2 Cup. peas

  • 150g gluten free pasta

  • a handful of chopped parsley

  • Pre heat oven to 200 deg fan forced

  • In a large saucepan melt butter on medium heat, add onion & cook until onion is soft.

  • Add flour & stir into butter until paste is made. Cook paste for 2 minutes; this will get rid of flour taste.

  • Gradually add milk and whisk over a medium heat until thick.

  • Take off the heat, add grated cheese, mix until melted & combined - you now have a cheese sauce.

  • Transfer cheese sauce to baking dish. (Use same pot to cook pasta)

  • Bring a pot of salted water to the boil & add GF pasta, cook until al dente. If you have a double boiler steam cauliflower whilst cooking pasta or simply add cauliflower to the pot of boiling pasta to cook. Drain pasta & cauliflower then add to cheese sauce. 

  • Add flaked tuna, parsley, peas to the dish & combine.

  • Top with grated cheese & bake until golden.
