INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 large head cauliflower, florets cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 bunch spring onion, finely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoons flour

  • 1 cup lite milk

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • Add salt to taste

  • 1 cup shredded organic cheddar cheese (reduce this for less carbs and add some extra Parmesan)

  • 1/8 cup grated fresh organic Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoons bread or corn flake crumbs

GUIDE / INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 180.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, seasoned with salt, to taste. Cook cauliflower in the boiling water about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain well and let cool until cool enough to handle. Pat dry with paper towels.

  • Transfer to a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook for about 5 minutes or until lightly golden-brown, stirring frequently.

  • Add the garlic and cook for one more minute. Stir in the flour, milk, mustard, and salt using a whisk and bring to a boil, continuing to stir constantly with a whisk. Whisk in the cheddar cheese, just until it melts and then remove from heat and pour over cauliflower in the baking dish. 

  • Top with parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Bake until lightly browned and bubbling hot, about 15 minutes. Serves 3-4.
