Preparation time is approximately 15 minutes

Cooking time is approximately 45 minutes




Ingredients

50g butter

50g plain flour

500ml milk

How to make cauliflower Cheese


1. Preheat oven to 180°C (Gas mark 4 or 160°C for a fan oven).

2. Add the florets to slightly salted boiling water and simmer for 5-10 minutes (don’t let it over boil and go mushy). Strain and place in an oven-proof dish.

3. Meanwhile melt the butter in a pan on a medium heat.

4. Add flour and stir continuously (with a whisk or wooden spoon) for a few minutes. It will look like a paste but keep stirring!

5. Gradually add approx. 100ml of the milk and stir continuously.

6. Gradually add another 100ml of milk and keep stirring! Continue until all milk is added.

7. Add mustard if using.

8. Pour sauce over cauliflower, sprinkle grated cheese over the top and bake for 20 minutes.


Serve immediately as a main or side dish.

HINTS & TIPS


The key to a non-lumpy sauce is to add the milk gradually and keep stirring!


You could add a mix of broccoli and cauliflower for a variation!


Experiment with adding different herbs (once the white sauce is cooked) to give different flavours.
