Cauliflower Gratin

For a long time we have been testing various methods to make a perfect  cauliflower gratin recipe, I also tried it with Bechamel Sauce, but still the best and simplest recipe is the one below, with heavy cream.

To my surprise, it is the only cauliflower / broccoli dish that Sofia and other children have liked.

It is made very quickly, you can also apply the method to broccoli / frozen cauliflower, be careful not to keep it too long in the oven as it is too soft.

Ingredients

Cauliflower
500 g
or broccoli
Heavy cream (32% fat)
200 ml
Yellow cheese
150 g
Salt and pepper
1 tsp
to taste
Olive oil
2 tbsp
or butter

Step by step

1

Cauliflower breaks the bouquets, washes well.

2

Boil a large saucepan with water. When it starts to boil add 1 tablespoon of salt and cauliflower prepared above.

From the moment you put the cauliflower, leave it in the pan for 5 minutes.

3

In another saucepan put cold tap water.

After the cauliflower has boiled for 5 minutes, remove it immediately and soak it in cold water.

This is to stop the cooking process, which still continues in the vegetables after removing them from cooking.

4

Grease with olive oil, or butter a small, deep baking tray.

Drain the chilled cauliflower well and put it in the prepared tray.

5

In a bowl, grate the cheese, add the sweet cream.

6

Season with salt and pepper, mix well with a spoon.

7

Distribute this composition evenly over the cauliflower in the pan.

8

Place the tray on the top shelf of the preheated oven at 200-250 degrees.

Leave to brown nicely.

9

And that's about it, serve it hot as a vegetable garnish or even as food. It goes very well with rice, couscous or mashed potatoes.

Good appetite!
