Ingredients

  • 1 large cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 50g butter
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 400ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 good tsp grainy mustard
  • 100g strong cheddar or gruyère
  • 10 leaves sage, roughly chopped
  • 3 slices white bread, cut into chunks
  • (or vegetarian alternative) 2 tbsp of grated parmesan
  • to serve green salad
  • to serve crusty bread

Method

  • STEP 1

    Simmer the cauliflower in boiling, salted water until just tender then leave to drain really well while you make the sauce.

  • STEP 2

    Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring all the time. Gradually add the milk, stirring until you have a smooth sauce. Simmer for a few minutes, then stir in the mustard and cheese.

  • STEP 3

    Whizz the bread and sage together to make crumbs and stir in the parmesan.

  • STEP 4

    Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Mix the cauliflower with the sauce and tip into individual dishes (or one large baking dish). Sprinkle over the crumbs and bake for 20-25 minutes until bubbling. Serve with salad and crusty bread.
