My mom always thoughtfully makes special dinners for our family when we come to visit, even though Dan's gluten-free diet makes her nervous. And the vegetarian part makes her crazy so she and her husband try to entice him into partaking of the meaty dishes on the table and convert him back to the carnivorous realm.
We had a sumptuous dinner at my mom's the other day and she made a terrific cheesy cauliflower casserole that we all devoured. Here's her great recipe:
Mom's Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole
1 head cauliflower, cut up into florets
1/4 cup gluten-free flour mix (Mom used Bob's Red Mill all-purpose)
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sour cream
Grated Cheddar and smoked gruyere cheese (Mom says add as much as you like)
Steam cauliflower in boiling salted water until al dente.
Place in buttered baking pan.
Melt butter in saucepan. Whisk in flour. Add salt, sour cream, milk and eggs. Stir until creamy and until lumps are all gone. Add in cheese and stir until melted.
Pour over cauliflower in baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour, or until nice and bubbly and browned on top.
Makes 6-8 servings.
