Cauliflower cheese


  • 1 medium cauliflower broken into small florets
  • 240 ml (1 cup) double (heavy) cream
  • 150 g (1 1/2 cups) Mature/strong Cheddar cheese, grated (use a vegetarian version if required)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F.
  • Bring a pan of water to the boil
  • Place the cauliflower florets in a steam basket over the top and place a lid on the pan, or place the cauliflower directly in the boiling water if you don’t have a steam basket.
  • Turn the water down to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes until the cauliflower is tender but not soggy. 
  • Drain the cauliflower.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of the cream in a baking dish and sprinkle on 2 tbsp of the grated cheese.
  • Add half of the cauliflower, then top with half of the remaining cream and quarter of the remaining cheese.
  • Sprinkle on half of the salt and pepper.
  • Top with the remaining cauliflower, then pour on the remaining cream. Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese, salt and pepper.
  • Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chopped parsley before serving.
