Flourless Cheese Sauce Ingredients:


  • Place a cup of cold water into your instant pot inner pot. Lower your steamer basket and load it up with your frozen cauliflower. Place the lid on the instant pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 2 minutes on manual pressure.
  • Once it is done and beeps, drain it in the sink in a sieve. Also remove the excess liquid from the bottom of the instant pot.
  • Put the instant pot on sauté and while it warms up peel and thinly slice fresh garlic and a red onion. Sauté for about 2 minutes or until the onion and garlic have softened.
  • Turn off the sauté and add back in the drained cauliflower.
  • Add in seasonings, coconut milk and keep stirring until the cauliflower is nice and mushy.
  • Using a hand blender, blend until smooth.
  • Add in cheese and stir until the cheese is mixed in and the cheddar has melted.


We used frozen cauliflower florets in this recipe. You can use fresh or frozen but note to add in 2 more extra minutes of pressure cook time if using fresh cauliflower.
When the cheese sauce is done and if it is too thick add in a little skimmed milk. Or if it is not thick enough add in a little more coconut milk.
I also like to add in a little white wine as it gives it a much better flavour.
