Hello my dear readers,
The cauliflower au gratin is a classic side dish that is prepared by cooking the cauliflower in the oven with bechamel and grated cheese. Easy to prepare, with a delicate and satisfying taste, it is perfect for meat and fish but it is also an excellent vegetarian dish. And because I like it even lighter I only use grated cheese without the bechamel sauce.
What you need are just a few ingredients:
- grated cheese of your choice
- a little bit of butter
- salt & pepper
How to do it:
Start preparing the cauliflower au gratin by cleaning the cauliflower. Eliminate the leaves and the harder base, divide it into florets and wash them under running water. Steam for about ten minutes, the florets must be cooked but a little “crunchy”. Arrange them in a previously buttered oven dish.
At this point add the bechamel sauce if you like, otherwise just sprinkle abundant grated cheese on top of the florets, a few flakes of butter, salt & pepper.
Cook into a preheated oven at 180° for about twenty minutes, until is golden brown on top.
Remove from the oven, let it rest for a few minutes and then is ready to serve.
We enjoyed it at dinner with chicken breast flavoured with lime zest.
Simple, cheap and yet delicious 😋
