Ingredients:

  • 1 large head cauliflower – cut into florets
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

For the sauce:

  • 9 fluid oz. skimmed goat milk
  • ¾ oz. butter
  • ¾ oz. flour
  • 6-8 rasps nutmeg
  • 1½ oz. mature cheddar – finely grated
  • 2 tsp English mustard

 

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Wash the cauliflower thoroughly and place in a large saucepan of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 3-5 minutes, until the cauliflower is almost tender, but still fairly firm. Tip into a colander and leave to drain.
  • Meanwhile, make the sauce: melt the butter in a saucepan, add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until a light golden color. Gradually add the goat milk until smooth, then cook over a gentle heat for 3-4 minutes, mixing as you heat until thickened.
  • Add the nutmeg. Turn down the heat and add the mustard and cheddar cheese. Taste and add a little pepper to taste.
  • Arrange the cauliflower in and ovenproof baking dish. Carefully pour over the sauce, ensuring the cauliflower is completely covered. Scatter over the remaining cheese and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden-brown and bubbling.
