One-Pan Umami Cauliflower Gratin

One-Pan Umami Cauliflower Gratin

This decadent side dish is equal parts cozy and glamorous. We’re packing a punch this winter with a gluten-free recipe that balances the rich cheese sauce with quick caramelized onions, savory miso, and double-tap of spice and crunch from our fan-favorite chips. Our Spicy Miso Ramen is also vegan, so you can gear this recipe to fit your dietary needs as well as flavor preference. Swap the ramen for one of our other flavors or go for cheeses you already have on hand. 

Makes: 6 Servings

Time: 1 hour


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced or minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 1-quart baking dish.

  3. Stir in miso, followed by cornstarch until a paste forms. Pour in heavy cream and bring to a simmer, stirring until starting to thicken, about .
  4. Stir in pepper, nutmeg, half of the crushed Spicy Miso Ramen, gruyere, and mozzarella until cheeses are melted. Fold in cauliflower.
