Cauliflower (|Macaroni|Brocolli|etc.) Cheese
8 November 2003
Boil a medium saucepan of water; roughly slice a head of cauliflower. Or use a pound of macaroni, or a few heads of brocolli, or some rocks, really, anything. Undercook slightly: cauliflower about four minutes, macaroni look at the box and subtract a minute or so.
While this is happening, put 2 tbsp of butter in a pan, and when melted throw in 2 cups milk. Put in about a cup and a half of white flour, two tablespoons at a time, mixing well. If you get lumps, don't worry about it; just use the stick blender to make them go away. When the mixture starts to thicken, throw in about two or three cups of roughly chopped or shredded cheese, and stir until it's melted. Take a glass pan, grease with olive oil. Drain the cauliflower, put in the pan and cover with cheese. Put in 350F oven for half an hour; to get more crust, put some spare cheese on top and put it under the broiler for 3-5 minutes.
