Aaron Craze’s Cauliflower Crème Brûlée

Aaron Craze shares an inventive recipe for cauliflower from his campaign ‘Love Your Greens’.

Earlier this year, chef and ‘Junior Bake Off’ presenter, Aaron Craze teamed up with Love Your Greens to launch a campaign to encourage people to eat more vegetables (read our interview with Aaron here). Coming up with a host of inventive recipes, he certainly inspires you to become more creative when cooking greens - and hopefully more excited about eating them. Here’s one recipe that we’ve got our eye on. Give it a go.
