As you know if you have read my easy cheesey pasta post, you know how much I love macaroni cheese, well I love cauliflower cheese just as much, in fact I often substitute half of the pasta for cauliflower to make it a little bit healthier.

The overall process of cauliflower cheese is pretty much the same as cheesey pasta, except I never add crackers to the top.

Preheat your oven to 180°C

Boil your cauliflower in a pan until halfway cooked. You do not want to boil it until all the way cooked as it will become mushy when you put it in the oven. When cooked halfway, drain and remove from the pan and add to a baking dish.

In a Medium sauce pan melt 2 TBSP of butter on a medium-low heat.

Once this is melted, add 2 TBSP of flour to the pan.

Mix the butter and flour together and cook for around 2 minutes stirring continuously.

Add the milk, salt and pepper and gently whisk whilst the pan is still on the heat and the milk is gently heating up until all of the lumps are gone and the sauce is smooth and thickened to your desired consistency.

Take around a quarter of the grated cheese and add it to the sauce. Stir until the cheese has melted.
