Easy Cauliflower Gratin Recipe Ina Garten 2021

Cauliflower cheese is a traditional British dish. It can be eaten as a main course, for lunch or dinner, or as a side dish. Cauliflower cheese consists of pieces of cauliflower lightly boiled and covered with a milk-based cheese sauce, for which a mature cheese tends to be preferred.

Cauliflower Gratin is perfectly cheesy and unbelievably easy! Serve as a yummy gluten-free and vegetarian side dish with any meal.

I don’t know about you, but any recipe that instructs the cook to “bake until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly” is a recipe I want to be making. 

Bonus points for a said recipe to call for just a handful of everyday ingredients, be gluten-free and vegetarian, good hot or cold and, it bears repeating, baked until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.

Come to (cheese-loving) Mama!

I scrolled past this post from @Tragicallyhere (<< my spirit animal) on Instagram the other day and Sauv blanc almost came shooting out of my nose. ? Listen, I GET IT. 

Cauliflower isn’t the be-all and end-all magic swap for anything Carbilicious and good in your life, but Cauliflower Gratin is an actual, delicious dish that you must try. Trust me, this “mock and cheese” is totally Craveable, and as easy as can be.

I mean, think about it – what vegetable doesn’t taste better blanketed under a luscious layer of two kinds of melted cheese? Cauliflower is no exception and this yummy, rustic side dish is proof.

Boiled cauliflower is drizzled with an easy, 5-minute homemade cheese sauce then, say it with me, baked until golden brown and bubbly. You got it! It’s the perfect thing to serve with your Easter ham this weekend, or truly anytime you need a side that everyone in the family will love. Cheese tends to hold that kind of power.

Although I am not advertising Cauliflower Gratin as “healthy”, it’s a healthIER swap for mac and cheese if your family can’t get enough. They still get that gooey, cheesy texture and flavor, plus all the goodness that comes along with eating cruciferous cauliflower.

We’ll be serving a big casserole dish of Cauliflower Gratin with our Easter dinner spread this year. Who’s with me?

Start by cutting 1 large head of cauliflower into large florets – you’ll need roughly 7 cups of florets. Add the cauliflower to a large pot of salted boiling water then boil until crisp-tender, 3-4 minutes, leaning on the crisp side as they’ll bake for an additional 30-35 minutes. Drain the cauliflower then set aside.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil then add the cauliflower florets and boil until al dente (don’t over boil!) 3-4 minutes. Drain then set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat then sprinkle in flour and cook for 1 minute while whisking constantly. Slowly pour in milk while whisking then turn heat up to medium-high and bring to a simmer while whisking constantly. Turn the heat back down to medium then simmer for 1 minute or until the milk has thickened, still stirring constantly. Remove pan from the heat then add 1/2 cup each gruyere and parmesan cheeses and stir until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add enough of the cheese sauce to thinly coat the bottom of an 8×11” baking pan. Add cauliflower florets then cover with remaining sauce. Top with remaining cheeses then bake for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Broil for a few minutes in the end if you want a darker top.
