Cauliflower in Cheese Sauce

Recipe by Tinkerbell
READY IN: 35mins




  • Remove the leaves from the cauliflower, rinse it well and then cut out the core. Cut the rest into four pieces.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and then add the cauliflower. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until tender. Drain and put it into an ovenproof casserole dish.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan, over low heat.
  • Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon to make a smooth paste.
  • Cook the mixture gently for a minute, then take the pan off the heat.
  • Stir in the milk, a little at a time.
  • Return the pan to the heat and let it cook on low for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir most of the grated cheese into the saucepan to melt. Season it with pinches of the salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • When the sauce has melted, pour over the cauliflower and sprinkle the reserved cheese on top.
  • Place under the broiler for a few minutes and until the top starts to bubble and brown.
