This is everyone’s favourite side dish. I cook it especially when we have roast dinner. Cauliflower, such a delicious vegetable, is so tasty when mixed with creamy cheesy sauce. If you don’t have time, just pour the sauce over the cooked cauliflower and serve. This dish is good enough without being baked.


4 Servings


Large Cauliflower 1
Bay Leaf 1
Butter 30g
Plain Flour 3 tablespoons (30g)
Milk 1 & 1/2 cups
Grated Tasty Cheddar Cheese 1/2 cup
Salt & Pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut Cauliflower into large florets. Place the Cauliflower and Bay Leaf in a large saucepan or pot, cover with water and add 1 teaspoon Salt, then bring to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes, then drain well. Place cooked Cauliflower in a large ovenproof dish. Discard the Bay Leaf.
  3. Melt Butter in a saucepan and stir in Flour. Cook for a few minutes over medium low heat. Pour in Milk and bring to the boil, stirring constantly, and simmer until the sauce thickens. Add the Cheese and mix well. Season with Salt & Pepper to taste.
  4. Pour the sauce over the Cauliflower. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
