Simple Cauliflower Cheese

22 Jul


Now I must admit, I’m definitely not a fan of cauliflower cheese or even macaroni cheese. I just really hate creamy, savory dishes and this ticks all those boxes but this recipe is supposedly amazing and so easy. It is the recipe my mom always uses when making cauliflower or macaroni cheese.


Mom made it the other day in a single serving and when she told my sister in America what she made, she was extremely envious! Both Lesley and Mom will tell you how great this recipe is and how it is basically a fool proof option. The cheese quantities in this are just a guideline, you can add more or less depending on how cheesy you want your sauce.


Simple Cauliflower Cheese (Serves 1 generously)

1/2 head cauliflower

1tsp flour

1tsp butter

1 cup low fat milk

1/2 cup grated mature cheddar, or to taste

1/4 cup grated parmesan, or to taste

salt and pepper

  • Preheat the oven to 200°c/395°f.
  • Steam the cauliflower until tender.
  • In a small pot over a medium heat, cook the flour and butter together until it forms a roux, a white paste.
  • Add the milk and mix until thick and creamy.
  • Add the cheddar and parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.
  • Place  the cauliflower in a small oven proof dish and pour the cheese sauce over it, making sure to coat everything.
  • Sprinkle with extra cheese and then bake for 15-20mins until the top is golden.
