Cauliflower, Raw

450 g, (1 large), broken into florets

Skimmed Milk

600 ml

Plain White Flour

50 g, plain

Low Fat Spread

25 g

Cheddar cheese

75 g, extra mature

Vegetarian parmesan style hard cheese

1 tablespoon(s), grated

Wholegrain Mustard

2 teaspoon(s), level

Chives, Fresh

1 tablespoon(s), chopped, to garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the cauliflower in a covered saucepan with a small amount of boiling, lightly salted water until just tender - about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make an all-in-one cheese sauce by putting the milk, flour and margarine into a saucepan. Bring up to the boil, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, until the sauce blends and thickens. Reduce the heat to low and cook gently, stirring all the time, for another 30 seconds or so.
  3. Add the cheddar and mustard to the sauce and cook gently for about 30 seconds, stirring, until the cheese has melted. Season to taste.
  4. Preheat the grill. Drain the cauliflower thoroughly, place in a warmed ovenproof serving dish, then pour over the sauce. Sprinkle with Italian-style hard cheese, then grill until lightly browned. Serve at once, sprinkled with fresh chives.
