An easy cheesy cauliflower

Why would anyone need a recipe for cauliflower cheese I hear you ask. Well, why not? This site is a bit of a family notebook for our favourite recipes, and this certainly is one of those. It’s also not quite a normal cauliflower cheese. It’s not just the broccoli, but it’s also the lack of a white sauce. We just use a sprinkle of Parmesan and mozzarella, and everyone’s happy.

  • Servings: 2-4
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • ½ a large cauliflower
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1−2 tablepsoons of parmesan cheese
  • a good handful or two of mozarella cheese

Directions

  1. Break the cauliflower and broccoli into fleurettes and lightly steam or microwave them until they are just tender.
  2. Drizzle some olive oil onto the veggies and stir them all around to make sure they’re evenly coated with the oil, then arrange them in a single layer in a large, shallow baking dish.
  3. Scatter the Parmesan cheese across the top of the now-lightly-oiled veggies. The amount is up to you and how much you like Parmesan cheese, but it should look like a dusting of cheese rather than a thick coating.
  4. Top with as much mozzarella as you like. We tend to have some patches with more mozzarella and some with less so we can cater for all tastes.
  5. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes in a 180ºoven (350F), or until the cheese has melted.
