Ingredients:

  • Large cauliflower or bag of frozen cauliflower
  • 60g butter
  • 60g plain flour
  • 1tsp mustard
  • 1pt milk
  • 60g strong cheese
  • large pinch of salt
  • large pinch of pepper

Preheat your oven to 180 or gas 4

Method:
Prepare your cauliflower and place in an oven proof dish. If using frozen cauliflower just tip it in as it is.

Put the butter in a pan on a warm heat and add the flour stirring all the time. When the butter has completely melted into the flour add the mustard and salt. Keep stirring for about a minute making sure it’s well mixed. Turn up the heat and add the milk slowly,¬†whisking all the time. Keep whisking so it doesn’t stick to the bottom. It will thicken a little bit but it should still be runny. If it gets too thick add more milk. Keep whisking until it’s nearly boiled but don’t allow it to actually boil. Remove from the heat, add most of the cheese and stir until melted. Pour over your Cauliflower and sprinkle the remainder of the cheese on top. Bake in the oven for 45 – 55 minutes stirring half way though if your using frozen. If fresh, cook for 30 – 35 mins.

This lovely cheese sauce can be used for lots of different meals, and can also be made in advance and stored covered in the fridge for up to 3 days. It’s very versatile and lovely with chicken goujons, or pasta or even fish.
