Cauliflower Cheese

Cauliflower Cheese

Cauliflower cheese is one of those suppers that you forget about and then remember how much you like it. This is simple classic recipe that’s open for lots of experimentation, like using different types of cauliflower (Romanesco or Purple), or adding ham, chives or different cheeses.

What to get your cheesy fix another way? Try our recipe for macaroni cheese, or if you’re feeling really adventurous tangy mac n cheese with broccoli and mustard!

Serves 2

  • 800g cauliflower, stalk and leaves removed
  • 50g butter
  • 150g strong cheddar
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 400ml milk
  • salt and pepper

Break the cauliflower into individual pieces. Boil in a large pan of water for 8 minutes and drain.

Meanwhile melt the butter in a non-stick pan. Add the flour and stir with a wooden or silicone spoon.

Once the flour and butter is combined, add the milk. Continue to stir until the lumps dissolve and the sauce thickens.

Add the cheese and stir until it’s melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Put the cauliflower in an ovenproof dish and pour over the cheese sauce. Sprinkle on a little extra grated cheddar and place under a hot grill for 5-10 minutes, or until golden on top.

Serve, maybe sprinkled with finely chopped chives or spring onions.

    Yum! I like cauli-cheese served with a baked potato. You can add other things too to jazz it up a bit if you want, such as a nice salad on the side and a slab of Stilton on the top. I had that as a pub lunch in Worthing once. It doesn’t sound like such a memorable meal but it really was good. I’ve tried to recreate it several times. Try it!

      I’ve thought about using some Romanesco or Purple cauliflower as well. That would look amazing!
