    Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce

    1 head of cauliflower

    1 tbs butter

    1 tbs flour

    1/2 tsp ground mustard

    Pinch nutmeg

    3/4 to 1 cup milk or half-and-half

    1 cup/4 ounces cheddar cheese or a cheddar Jack blend, shredded

    Kosher salt to taste

    Freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Separate the cauliflower into small florets.

    Put the florets in a steaming basket over about 1/2-inch of simmering water.

    Cover and let the cauliflower steam for about 5 to 8 min, until crisp-tender or tender.

    Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

    Add the flour, ground mustard, and nutmeg and cook, whisking or stirring constantly, for about 1 1/2 to 2 min.

    Gradually whisk in 3/4 cup of the milk or half-and-half and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until thickened.

    Stir in the shredded cheese and continue cooking, stirring, until the cheese has melted.

    Thin the sauce with a tbs or two of milk, if desired, and add salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.  Makes 1 1/4 cups of sauce.

    Transfer the cauliflower to a serving dish and spoon the sauce over it or serve the cauliflower and pass the sauce separately.  Serves 4-6
