  • 1 medium size cauliflower, remove the green outer leaves and break off to small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp. GF ground mustard seed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, cut into small chunks
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped chives
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F
  • Place cauliflower into a pot of boiling water with a pinch of sea salt, cover and cook for 3 minutes. The cauliflower should be slightly crisp. Drain and keep 1 cup of the cauliflower broth
