Cauliflower with goat's cheese


  1. Place bring a large pan of water to the boil. Divide the cauliflower up into even large florets and place into the boiling water to cook for 5-6 mins.
  2. Once cooked through, drain well and leave to one side while you cook the goat’s cheese sauce.
  3. Melt the butter. Add in the flour and stir well, using a wooden spoon for 1 min.
  4. Once the paste is completely smooth, add in the milk. Change to a whisk at this point and remove all the lumps. When the mixture is boiling and starting to thicken, add in a little more milk. 
  5. When you have used all the milk and the sauce is smooth and thick, turn off the heat and add in the French goat’s cheese, Dijon mustard, nutmeg and egg yolk; season well with salt and black pepper.
  6. Place the drained cauliflower back into the large saucepan it was cooked in and pour over the cheese sauce. Coat then arrange into an ovenproof dish. Pour over the rest of the sauce and finish with the fresh breadcrumbs. Place into the oven for 35-40 mins until the top is crisp and golden brown.
