Simple Cauliflower Cheese

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 1 cauliflower
  • 8.8 oz creme fraiche
  • 1 tbsp french grainy mustard like Dijon
  • a generous grating of nutmeg
  • 3.4 fl oz double cream
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 5.3 oz mature cheddar cheese freshly grated
  • handful flat leaved parsley finely chopped


  • Firstly prepare the cauliflower by washing it and cutting it into individual little florets, with all the hard woody stems discarded. Place the florets in a double boiler and steam until they are soft and yielding when pierced with a sharp knife. Remove the cauliflower florets from the heat and place in a buttered, ovenproof serving dish.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix together the creme fraiche, mustard, nutmeg, double cream, a generous grating of black pepper, and half the grated cheddar cheese.
  • Pre-heat the grill to its hottest setting.
  • Pour the creamy sauce over the hot cauliflower, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and brown under the hot grill, for about 10 minutes, until the top is golden brown and crisp.
  • Serve with freshly chopped parsley sprinkled on top.

Parent Diviner

A bit quirky, I started blogging after successfully getting my son to eat by talking like a robot. I then transformed into said robot and have been writing about my parenting learnings ever since. Inspired by my infant daughter, imaginative toddler son and supportive husband, I document life as I know it: chaotic, coffee soaked and filled with awesomeness. In my spare time I enjoys fake shopping online, writing love letters to Ryan Gosling, and avoiding folding laundry.
