This creamy and cheesy cauliflower side compliments any main. You can make it ahead and just reheat in the oven before serving.



  • 1 head medium size cauliflower, remove the green outer leaves and break off florets to small bite size pieces
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. less 1 tsp. all purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp. ground mustard seed
  • 1 cup cauliflower broth (the water in which cauliflower was cooked in)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, cut into squares
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped chives
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • NOTE: All ingredients including spices must be gluten-free and preferably organic
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Place cauliflower into a pot of boiling water with a pinch of sea salt, cover and cook for three to five minutes. The cauliflower should be slightly crisp. Drain and keep 1 cup of the cauliflower broth on
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat, then and add olive oil, flour, and mustard. Once it starts bubbling cook for about a minute while stirring.
  • Whisk in broth, milk, cheese and chives and while stirring cook on low heat until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper. If the sauce is too thick you can add a little more broth or milk.
  • Place cauliflower in an ovenproof casserole dish, and pour cheese sauce on top. Bake for 15 minutes
