Cauliflower cheese (gluten free and low carb)

This is a great recipe if you are entertaining for anyone that is either wanting a low carb diet or is gluten free. It's a very rich cheese sauce to replace a normal white sauce (that would need flour) and is really delicious. Though it is higher in calories since it is high in fat content but if you are on a low carb diet this won't be an issue (and if you are not then just have it as a treat!)

Chop up two small cauliflowers.

Boil then in salted water for about 5 minutes so they are still crisp.

Meanwhile make the sauce- heat about 250ml of double cream in a pan until simmering.

Then add about 100g cream cheese and a tsp of dijon mustard.

Stir this until melted.

Then add about a cup of grated cheese.

Then stir this through off the heat. 

Put the cooked cauliflower into an oven dish that has been sprayed with oil.

Then cover with the sauce and mix and top with some more grated cheese.

Finally bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes or place under a hot grill until the cheese is bubbling. Serve immediately.

To keep it low carb/gluten free serve with a meat dish (roast chicke, steak, grilled salmon etc) and either a green salad or some wilted kale and spinach works well with this.
