Ooey Goey delicious cheesy cauliflower! It’s rich and creamy but has no added cream! If you are not a fan of cheese, this dish could very well make you one!



    Let’s make yummy cheese crisps first!

  1. Take a microwave-safe plate and cover it with a piece of parchment paper
  2. Place thin slices of cheese and heat in the microwave till they turn nice and brown
  3. This should not take more than 1-2 min.
  4. After it cools down for 5 minutes you’ll see that they’re nice and crisp
  5. Set these aside
  6. Let’s blanch cauliflower florets next

  7. Take 6 cups of water in a pot and bring it to a boil
  8. Add around 1.5 teaspoons of salt
  9. Drop the florets in and place the lid on
  10. Let it cook for approximately five minutes
  11. Drain off the water completely
  12. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to pan and set it on high heat
  13. Now stir fry the cauliflower so it browns nicely. This should take around 10 minutes on high heat. Browning the cauliflower makes it really really tasty! You can Brown it as much as you like!
  14. Set them aside
  15. Now let’s make our delicious cheese sauce
  16. Add 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan set on medium heat
  17. Add finely chopped onions and stir fry them till they are translucent
  18. This should take a minute or so
  19. Then add the garlic powder. You can add crushed garlic instead if you like
  20. Add all-purpose flour in and stir fry the roux for around 2 minutes or so till it turns into a nice light golden color
  21. Now add the milk in. Its best when the milk is warm or at room temperature.
  22. Add powdered black pepper
  23. Crush 1/2 a stock cube with your fingers and add that in
  24. Add in the cheese
  25. Stir the sauce for 5 to 6 minutes. Don’t make the sauce too thick because the sauce keeps getting thicker as it cools.
  26. You can add more salt if you need to and then drop the cauliflower florets in
  27. Coat them really well with the sauce.
  28. At this point you can cook a little longer to make the sauce thicker
  29. Now add the shredded mozzarella cheese
  30. Break up the cheese crisps and sprinkle them all over
  31. Now garnish with finely chopped spring onion greens or chives
