Today I’m going to show you how to make this easy cauliflower cheese, super simple and it just so happens to be gluten free – less effort less washing up but still with all that creamy cheesy flavour.


  • 1 medium cauliflower broken into small florets

  • 240 ml (1 cup) double (heavy) cream

  • 150 g (1 1/2 cups) Mature/strong Cheddar cheese, grated (use a vegetarian version if required)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped


  • I’ve got the oven preheating to 200 C or 400 F and a large pan of water coming to the boil so we can par cook the cauliflower.
  • Chop one large or too small cauliflower into florets.
  • Place the cauliflower florets in a steam basket over a pan of simmering water and place the lid on top, or if you haven’t got a steam basket you can just boil it in water instead, so now we steam or boil that cauliflower for about five minutes until it’s just tender but not soft.
  • After five minutes remove the cauliflower from the steamer or drain over a colander if you’ve boiled it.boiled cauliflower
  • Now pour two tablespoons of the cream into a baking dish or a cast-iron pan then sprinkle on two tablespoons of the cheese.
  • Arrange half of the cauliflower in a single layer.cheese cauliflower
  • Then top with half of the remaining cream and quarter of the remaining cheese and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
