Here's a quick & easy recipe that I came up with as a result of a Google search. It seemed perfect since it did not require too many ingredients and I did not have much in my refrigerator anyway!
1 head of cauliflower, broken in florets (You could use frozen cauliflower too)
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheese ( I used Mozzarella)
Salt & pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Blanch the cauliflower florets in a pot of salted boiling water until just tender (this takes about 3-4 minutes). I salt the water just so that the flavor of the cauliflower is enhanced slightly.
Meanwhile, prepare some white sauce by melting the butter, blending in the flour & adding the milk gradually while stirring constantly till the mixture thickens. ( takes about 3 minutes or so)Add salt & pepper.
Drain the cauliflower & place in a baking dish. Sprinkle a little bit of the shredded cheese uniformly over the florets.
Pour the white sauce over this.
Finally, sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese over the sauce and bake at 375 degree F for 20 minutes until the cheese melts & you get a nice golden brown topping.
Other veggies that you could include in this recipe are corn & broccoli. They taste so good together.Unfortunately, I was out of both.This took me a little under 30 min to prepare from start to finish & I did not have to worry about cleaning up either since it is cooked & served in the same dish!
This picture does not do justice to the dish. Believe me, it tastes better than it looks!! :-)
