Ingredients

1 cauliflower, cut into florets (about 6 cups/1.5 L)
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 tbsp (37 mL) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) milk
1/4 cup (50 mL) thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 tsp (2 mL) sweet paprika or
1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) smoked paprika
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
3/4 cup (175 mL) shredded Canadian old Cheddar or
Friulano cheese, divided

Preparation

In a large pot of boiling water, boil cauliflower for about 7 min or until just tender. Drain well; set aside.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté garlic for 1 min or until fragrant. Whisk flour into milk; gradually pour into pan, whisking constantly. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, pepper and cook, stirring, for about 3 min or until bubbling and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in half of the cheese until melted. Pour over cauliflower in a heatproof serving dish; sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Tips

To save time, you can purchase pre-cut cauliflower and in a pinch, use thawed frozen cauliflower and just boil for 1 to 2 min or until hot.

Be sure to drain the cauliflower very well to prevent watering down the cheese sauce.

Make this a crumb-topped gratin: Spread cauliflower mixture in a shallow 8-cup (2 L) baking dish. Combine 1 cup (250 mL) fresh whole wheat bread crumbs, 1/2 cup (125 mL) additional shredded cheese, 1 tbsp (15 mL) melted butter, 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh basil and pepper to taste; sprinkle over cauliflower. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 min or until lightly browned.
