Today I'm going to share with you a really delicious recipe! Ooey Goey Rich, Creamy, Cheesy Cauliflower! A Cheese Lover's Dream! It's a simple no bake recipe and there's no added cream!
Let’s make yummy cheese crisps first!
Take a microwave-safe plate and cover it with a piece of parchment paper
Place thin slices of cheese and heat in the microwave till they turn nice and brown
This should not take more than 1-2 min.
After it cools down for 5 minutes you'll see that they're nice and crisp
Set these aside
Let’s blanch cauliflower florets next
Take 6 cups of water in a pot and bring it to a boil
Add around 1.5 teaspoons of salt
Drop the florets in and place the lid on
Let it cook for around five minutes
Drain off the water completely
Add 2 tablespoons of oil to pan and set it on high heat
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!
Set them aside
Now let’s make our delicious cheese sauce
Add 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan set on medium heat
Add finely chopped onions and stir fry them till they are translucent
This should take a minute or so
Then add the garlic powder. You can add crushed garlic instead if you like
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
Now add the milk in. Its best when the milk is warm or at room temperature.
Add powdered black pepper
Crush 1/2 a stock cube with your fingers and add that in
Add in the cheese
Stir the sauce for 5 to 6 minutes
Don’t make the sauce too thick because the sauce keeps getting thicker as it cools.
You can add more salt if you need to and then drop the cauliflower florets in
Coat them really well with the sauce.
At this point you can cook a little longer to make the sauce thicker
Now add the shredded mozzarella cheese
Break up the cheese crisps and sprinkle them all over
Now garnish with finely chopped spring onion greens or chives
Hope you enjoyed the recipe! Let me know!
