I think we all need comfort at this point: cauliflower gratin.

February 28, 2014

That is right!  Last day of February and -26C this morning.  I tend to think that Spring will never come around…  This is a long and tough winter (Well, at least for me, I am from South of France, remember?).  My previous winters, since 2006, have not been that brutal.

I am not asking for 20C (although, I would not complain) but just anything in positive degree… Please, please, Winter go away! Am I the only one here?  All together.  PLEASE, PLEASE, WINTER GO AWAY!  It might work :)!

In the meantime, I have a simple recipe to propose.  It is super comforting and the entire family will love it.   It is creamy, it is warm and it is what you need this weekend.

Gratin

Tip:  You can grate some nutmeg on it.   It adds an amazing flavor.

And voilà!  Easy, tasty, it is what I do!  Enjoy and stay warm. Cauliflower gratin

Cauliflower gratin.

Yield: 4 portions

Ingredients

  • - One cauliflower (on average 750g)
  • - Bechamel ingredients 
  • - Grated cheese, preferably Emmental

Instructions

  1. - Cut your cauliflower into floret and cook it in a steamer.  If you do not own a steam, it is not the end of the word, I have cooked it in salted boiling water before, cook it until a knife can enter the vegetable easily. 
  2. - Follow the bechamel instructions here.
  3. - In an oven dish, place the cauliflower, pour the bechamel heavenly on top of it.
  4. - Add the cheese on top.
  5. - Cook in the oven 15-20 minutes at 350C and serve!
