Cauliflower With Quick Cheese Sauce

Total Time

My boys aren't fond of "funny looking stuff" but they gobble this up every time I make it. Maybe they think I'm serving mashed potatoes. Anyway, this is quick and easy. Don't forget the paprika.

This turned out quite good. It was easy and tasty. I added some parmesan cheese to give it a bit more flavor.

instead of paprika, I always add nutmeg to cauliflower .. a natural spice with this veg.

Mmmmm....This was just what I was looking for. Just right. I wanted a cheese sauce that wasn't to heavy. I added some minced jalapeno because I have a ton to use up and it added a touch of heat to the sauce, but I tried the sauce before adding the peppers and it was lovely. The cooking technique worked perfect and the sauce its flexible enough to stand up to more cheese or seasoning, if that's what floats your boat, but I thought this was great as is. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll be making it again.
