Creamy, comforting cheese sauce baked onto peppery roasted cauliflower.
Serves: 4
  • 1 head of fresh cauliflower, cut into large florets
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground mustard
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Frank’s Hot Sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. On a foil-lined baking sheet, mix cauliflower, oil, garlic powder, black pepper, ground mustard and parmesan cheese until all of the cauliflower is well-coated.
  3. Roast for 20 minutes.
  4. In a small pot, add cornstarch, shredded cheese (I like to mix up the cornstarch and cheese as it helps distribute the cornstarch evenly), cream, water and hot sauce.
  5. Cook on medium high heat, stirring frequently, until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened, approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Place the roasted cauliflower in a greased casserole dish.
  7. Top with the cheese sauce.
  8. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
