There were a couple of small Cauliflowers in the polytunnel that looked as though they were about to go to seed with the intense heat they had been put under while I have had to keep the doors closed to keep out marauding chickens, so I picked them the other day and made one of our favourite teas ...Cauliflower Cheese.
It's so simple and quick. I just cook the chopped cauliflower for five minutes in boiling water, adding some frozen peas for the last three and then drain and tip into an ovenproof dish. But this time .....
... I cheated!!
We had some of this instant cheese sauce in the cupboard so I decided to use it rather than making a cheese sauce from scratch. (Which is simply 50g each of butter and flour cooked together for a couple of minutes and then milk is added and then a big handful of strong tasting cheese.)
Instant cheese sauce was not as bad as I expected it to be, and topped with a handful of grated cheese and half of the jar of buttery breadcrumbs (both straight from the freezer) it made for a very good, very tasty and very quick tea.
