  • Meanwhile, whisk flour with 2 tablespoons milk until smooth. Heat the remaining milk in a saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Add the flour mixture; cook, whisking, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in Gruyere, chives (or parsley), garlic, salt and pepper. Spoon over the cauliflower and serve.

I substituted pancakes for the cauliflower and maple syrup for the sauce and then added about 1/3 cup of butter. It was way too much! I don't understand why anyone would make this! Read More

Used 2% swiss for this and it was bland and lacked "swiss" flavor. Next time I'll use Gruyere. Sauce was smooth. Mark Griebe Conroe TX Read More

This is delicious especially over roasted cauliflower but it's great on all veggies! It got a big thumbs up from my family too and they are picky eaters. I did up the amount of cheese to about a cup tsk tsk. Read More

This dish is Scrumptious I didn't have Gruyere so I substituted Mozzarella and also added some hot curry powder to give it some spice. Cody Aginas Edmonton AB Read More
