Cauliflower and cheese bake
This cauliflower and cheese dish is a simple, budget-friendly and versatile recipe that works as a great side with many main dishes. 

50g butter, plus extra for greasing

1 cauliflower, cut

50g plain flour

Salt and pepper to season

250ml milk

110g mozzarella cheese, grated

50g cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F/ Gas Mark 7. Lightly grease an ovenproof dish with butter.

Cook the cauliflower in a pot of boiling water for 5 – 8 minutes until it is tender. Put the semi-cooked florets into the prepared dish and set aside.

In a saucepan, combine the rest of the butter with the flour and cook until the butter has melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour in the milk and whisk until it resembles a sauce-like texture. Add the cheese and cook until melted.

Pour the cheese sauce over the cauliflower and season with a little more salt and pepper.

Place in the oven for 25 minutes until the cheese starts to bubble.

Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
