well, the casserole was delicious.
there is a little left over. not enough for a full meal for two but we’ll make it part of a meal.
I’m going to blanch 1/2 a small cauliflower, that i’ve cut into big chunks, in salted boiling water for about 4 minutes. then I’m going to drain it really well.
In a small saucepan, melt a tablespoon of butter on medium heat. add about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of plain flour and stir or whisk well for about 45 seconds to cook the flour. then slowly whisk in about 3/4 of a cup of milk. ( I use soy cause i like the flavour but any milk will do.) keep whisking until sauce is bubbling and thicker. take off the heat, add pinch of salt, pinch of pepper, 1/4 teaspoon curry powder and 1 fresh egg and whisk well to combine. taste and adjust the seasoning.
put the cauliflower in a small oven dish. pour the sauce over to cover. sprinkle some breadcrumbs on top ( I use panko breadcrumbs because they’re bigger crumbs ). bake in the oven 180c for about 30 minutes or until brownish on top.
You could sprinkle with grated cheese if you want. makes it richer.
this can also be made gluten free by using gluten free flour, curry powder and breadcrumbs.
I also like this with a roast or a piece of fresh cooked corned beef.
Anyway, I’ll be serving this with what’s left of the casserole from yesterday. maybe some warm crusty bread on the side.
