Cauliflower -Au-Gratin


Enjoy nicely baked cauliflower in rich and creamy white sauce topped with colorful bellpeppers and cheese…




Ingredients:

1 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1/4 cup green & red bellpepper, diced
1 cup white sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Salt to taste
1 tsp butter
1/2 cup cheese, grated

Method:

  • Blanch cauliflower florets in salted water until tender, drain and keep aside.
  • Grease baking dish and preheat oven to 200° C.
  • In a pan, heat butter, add garlic cloves, bellpeppers with little salt and saute for a min.
  • Mash cauliflower slightly and spread evenly in baking dish.
  • Pour white sauce over cauliflower and add sautéed bellpeppers over.
  • Topped with an even layer of grated cheese.
  • Bake for 15 -20 min and grill for last 5 minutes of baking.
  • Take out carefully and serve hot with garlic bread.

 Notes:
  • Adding bell peppers is optional, I added for nice color and crunchiness.
  • While making white sauce add a pinch nutmeg or cinnamon powder for nice aroma.
