Getting everything ready


  1. Bring a medium-sized saucepan half full with water to the boil and add the salt.
  2. Carefully add the cauliflower florets and boil gently until only just cooked.  We need the florets to still be slightly firm.  Remove from the heat and drain into a colander.
  3. Place the cauliflower florets into an ovenproof dish.
  4. Coat the cauliflower florets with the mornay sauce and sprinkle with the grated cheese.
  5. Place the cauliflower mornay into a very hot oven or under a hot grill to melt the cheese and given the top a light brown colour.
  6. Serve the cauliflower mornay in the dish or spoon onto warmed plates.

You could, of course, not use the mornay sauce and serve the cauliflower naturally.
