• 1 (16-20-ounce) bag frozen cauliflower florets or 1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat, shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons plain bread crumbs


Cook the cauliflower according to package directions or steam fresh cauliflower 8 to 10 minutes until tender. Set aside.

Whisk together the milk, flour, mustard and garlic powder in a small saucepan until well blended. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and continue to simmer and stir gently for about 2 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly.

Stir in the cheddar cheese until melted.

Preheat the broiler on high. Arrange the cauliflower in a baking pan and pour the cheese sauce evenly over the top. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and broil for about 2 minutes or until the bread crumbs turn golden brown.
