This was a very nice vegetable dish. Lovely combination of flavors. I did use frozen cauliflower florets, thawed and drained. I also did not strain the almonds from the half and half and it was delicious. Served this as a side dish to Barcelona Style Pork Tenderloin With Sherry & Peppers. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I love Manchego, this is very close to what we are doing for Christmas Eve Dinner. I like the detail in the instructions, NcMysteryShopper has done the home work on this one.

I made this for Thanksgiving 2006. It was really great. I loved the aroma of the almonds and 1/2 and 1/2. I will definately make this again. Thanks :)

Delicious. Best cauliflower cheese I've ever had. I didn't bother to strain the almonds out after processing with the cream mixture, and it made it even thicker and more luxurious. Well done NCMysteryShopper, a great recipe!

I haven't ever been very fond of cauliflower every since my parents tortured me with rutabagas, kohlrabis and other SMELLY veggies as a child (claiming they were "good"). Ugh. HOWEVER, I am HAPPY :-) to report that as I've gotten older my tastebuds have changed, and I've learned that there are interesting and tasty ways to prepare these "smelly" veggies not involving cooking them in water until they're a mushy (smelly) mess of slop. And this recipe is EXQUISITE! Nothing smelly, demented or torturous about this recipe at all! Okay....I didn't have manchego cheese, so I subbed in Mozzarella, which lent a very nice and somewhat-stringy quality to the sauce, but we LOVED it anyway! I loved the sauteeing part--gives a lovely brown tinge to the 'flower--cheers up the whole countenance of the recipe! KEEPER!!!! *Made for ZWT 3 US Regional*

This is so good! Cauliflower is my favorite vegetable and I just love cheese. I could eat this every day! I picked the nuts off mine. Thanks Chef - THIS ROCKS!

We had this as the main dish for a vegetarian meal. We'd never tried Manchego cheese before; I now think I'm hooked! This dish has lovely subtle flavours. I think I'll take up Rita's suggestion re straining the almonds next time. This dish gets Mrs B's recipe of the week award.

Sinfully rich. Comfort food! No the color is right in the picture I used purple cauliflower. I did strain the almonds but I think tha step can be skipped. I would have like the tiny pieces throughout the creamy, rich sauce.
