Cauliflower with White Sauce

13 03 2011

Growing up I remember eating lots of Cauliflower with white sauce. It was my favorite side dish and was what I told everyone was my favorite food.  It is a very easy dish to make that doesn’t take much time.  Since we got a green cauliflower or broccoflower in our basket this last Saturday I knew what we would make with it.

Cauliflower with White Sauce

~ 1 head of cauliflower

~ 2 Tbsp. butter

~ 2 Tbsp. flour

~ 1 cup milk

~ salt and pepper to taste

1. Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower and then cut the stalk from the head.  Once the stalk is removed cut the florets from the core. If the florets are larger than you would like cut them down in size.

2. Place florets in a pot of water and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil until florets are tender about 10 minutes.

3. In a small sauce pan melt butter on med to med high heat. Once butter is melted add flour and stir until creamy.  Then add the milk, salt, and pepper.  Keep stirring until sauce thickens, about 5 to 10 minutes.

4. Drain cauliflower florets and top with white sauce.
