Cauliflower with Gruyere sauce

Plain steamed or microwaved cauliflower turns into something extraordinary when you cover it with this rich-tasting twist on a classic cheese sauce.

SERVINGS: 4   |  TOTAL TIME: 23 min

  • 8 cup(s) cauliflower
  • bite-size florets
  • 4 teaspoon flour, all-purpose
  • 1 cup(s) 1% milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup(s) cheese, Gruyere, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon chives, fresh or chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pepper, black ground to taste


1. Place cauliflower florets in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. (Alternatively, place florets in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water, cover and microwave on High for 2 to 4 minutes.)

2. 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.

3. Remove from heat; stir in Gruyere, chives (or parsley), garlic, salt and pepper. Spoon over the cauliflower and serve.
