"I Love Your Cauliflower Cheese Bake" recipe | Thermomix Varoma Recipe


I know this seems quite a simple dish that probably doesn't require a recipe....but when I post pictures of things like this on my Facebook page everyone starts to ask me for the recipe, so I am guessing some of you would like to know how?


Ingredients
1 whole cauliflower, cut into pieces
3 slices of bread or breadcrumbs pre-made in your TM
500g milk
50g flour
50g butter, diced
1/2 ts salt (optional)
100g cheddar cheese cut into small chunks
500g water for steaming

Method

Preheat oven to 220c. You can put a large rectangular casserole dish in to warm up with the oven at the same time

Place bread and 40g of cheese into TM bowl and grate for 5-10 seconds, speed 6. Set aside. No need to wash TM bowl
Add 500g of water, put cauliflower pieces in Varoma, set in place and cook on Varoma temp, 20 minutes, speed 2
When cooked, set varoma aside with the cauliflower still inside and lid still on to keep warm (you can sit the varoma on top of your round Thermoserver if you like) and empty water out of TM bowl (no need to wash)
Add milk, flour, butter and salt if using to TM bowl, cook on 90c for 7 minutes, speed 4
For the last minute of cooking time, stop Thermomix, add in the remaining cheese chunks and mix at speed 7 for 10 seconds, then drop down to speed 3 until timer finishes
Put cooked cauliflower in casserole dish
Pour cheese sauce over the top
Top with cheese and breadcrumb mixture
Bake on 220c for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Alternatively you can just brown the cheese and breadcrumbs under the grill until golden

You could also do this with half cauliflower, half brocoli, or with any other veggies you like
