Pinch of ground nutmeg

In a saucepan melt the butter then stir in the flour, keep mixing for a few minutes. Next add the milk and nutmeg. Bring to the boil then simmer until it thickens. In a blender, blend the silken tofu with a splash of water until nice and smooth. Add this to the sauce mix and stir in the parmesan now. Add salt to taste.

Slice the veg and add to a casserole dish with the oil and whole garlic cloves. Roast for around 30 minutes. Once ready mash the garlic and mix through the veg.
