Cod and cauliflower gratin
This cod and cauliflower gratin is a great and tasty way to incorporate fish into your child's diet. 

50g Flora Original

1 onion, finely diced

50g plain flour

600mls low fat milk, warm

175g cheddar cheese, grated

A little salt and pepper

100g spinach, roughly chopped

1 head of cauliflower, divided into florets 492g

400g cod, boned and cut into bite-size pieces

To Serve

Steamed potatoes

1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 200°C, 180°C fan, Gas mark 6.

Firstly make the white sauce. Melt the Flora in a medium sized saucepan, add the diced onion and sweat for about 10 minutes, until the onions are soft but not coloured.

Using a wooden spoon, add the flour and stir for 2 minutes, to allow the flour to cook a little, but be careful that it doesn’t burn.

Turn up the heat and slowly add the warmed milk. Stirring constantly, bring to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer for a minute. Season with a little salt and pepper and stir in the chopped spinach. Take off the heat but cover to keep warm.

Steam the cauliflower florets for about 7 minutes.

Place the diced cod on a baking dish and add the par-cooked cauliflower.

Pour over the white sauce, making sure to cover the fish and cauliflower well. Sprinkle over the cheese.

Place in the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbling and the fish is cooked through.

Serve straight away with cooked potatoes and a slice of lemon, for squeezing over the fish.
