Cauliflower Gratin

Signitureuhhhhhhhhhhh not the best picture.

This is a recipe from Jessica Seinfeld's second book, Double Delicious.

Cauliflower Gratin

1 medium head cauliflower

1 tbsp butter

2 tsp flour

1 cup nonfat milk

1/2 cup cheese

1/2 cup butternut squash or carrot puree

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

2 tbsp grated Parmesan

1. Preheat oven to 400 f. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cut the cauliflower into bite size florets. Blanch for 2 to 3 mins so that they just begin to get tender but are still firm. Drain in a colander and set aside.

2. In the same saucepan, melt the margarine. Whisk in the flour and cook 1 min over medium heat. Slowly whisk in the milk to prevent lumps from forming and bring to a boil. The mixture will begin to thicken. Cook 2 to 3 mins more. Reduce the heat to low and add the cheddar, butternut squash or carrot puree, salt and pepper.

3. Add the cauliflower to the cheese mixture and transfer to a greased 9 inch baking dish. Top with grated Parmesan. Bake for 15 mins until the gratin is bubbly and the top begins to brown. Serve immediately.

Great way to get kids to eat some veggies ;)
