• 300 g frozen cauliflower
  • 220 g macaroni
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 250 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 50 g full-fat soft cream cheese
  • 75 g mature cheddar, grated
  • 2 tbsp dried breadcrumbs


  1. 1

    Cook the cauliflower in boiling water for 15 minutes, until very soft. Drain and purée in a food processor until smooth. Meanwhile, cook the macaroni in boiling salted water for 10 minutes until cooked, then drain. 

  2. 2

    Preheat the grill to medium high. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the oil gently, then stir in the flour. Leave over a gentle heat and whisk in the milk gradually. Simmer for 1 minute to thicken. Remove from the heat and whisk in the soft cheese and two-thirds of the grated cheddar. Fold in the cauliflower purée and the cooked macaroni. 

  3. 3

    Pour into an ovenproof dish, sprinkle over the remaining cheese and the breadcrumbs and grill for 10 minutes, until golden.
