>Cauliflower Cheese

Even though my little ones are very good eaters, they still have some things that they will not eat. Cauliflower is one of those.

However, the only vegetable that I had available yesterday was just that. Being determined that they should eat some kind of vegetable each day, I decided to make cauliflower cheese, hoping they would like it.
Basic recipe:
  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 300ml milk
  • 220 cheddar cheese
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 50g butter
  • 25g fresh breadcrumbs (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp dried english mustard
  • salt and peppar (optional)
  • nutmeg (optional)
  1. Trim and boil cauliflower until tender, about 10-15 mins. Drain and and place in buttered oven-proof dish.
  2. Melt butter, add flour. Stir until smooth. Add milk. Whisk continuously until sauce thickens, boils and is smooth. Simmer for another 2 mins.
  3. Add 3/4 of grated cheese and seasoning. Cook for a further minute.
  4. Pour sauce over cauliflower.
  5. Mix remaining cheese and breadcrumbs (if using) and sprinkle over the top.
  6. Place under hot grill until golden brown OR place in preheated (225C/450F) oven for 15-20 mins, until golden brown and bubbling.
  7. Serve immediately.
*Note. This recipe is also delicious with root vegetables and/or broccoli.
Enjoy. x
