Whole Roast Cauliflower Cheese with Wild Garlic
This Whole Roast Cauliflower Cheese with Wild Garlic recipe is one of my family favorites. It is such a special way to cook the humble cauliflower. Cauliflower is a very nutritious vegetable, but unless it is cooked well, it can be tasteless. Thankfully, with this recipe, you can say goodbye to tasteless cauliflower!
Start by pre-cooking the whole cauliflower in a large pot of boiling water. Once softened, place in a colander to drain and cool. Make the sauce by combining Cheddar cheese, creme fraiche, a beaten egg, melted butter and chopped garlic leaves. Season with salt and pepper and pour over the cauliflower before baking in the oven until golden and bubbling. Serve with a fresh green salad and some wild garlic flowers on top.
