Zesty Cheese Sauce With Cauliflower

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by LuckyMomof3

Sounds like a great way to "spice" up and colour up cauliflower. Haven't tried this one yet but looking forward to doing so.

Great way to do cauliflower. The sauce is thick and rich. I used both red pepper flakes and dried chives (about 1 tsp each). It was zesty! If you don't like "zesty", just skip the red pepper flakes and you'll still love it. I'll make this again; maybe even for broccoli. Thanx for sharing.
