 Medium Saucepan
 Small Saucepan
 Steamer colander
 Glass Roasting Dish

 1 Large Cauliflower
 Black Pepper

 Cheese Sauce
  (Grated Cheddar Cheese)
 25g/1oz Plain Flour

 ½ tsp Mustard

Preheat the oven to 220°c / 400°f / gas mark 7.
Cut the cauliflower into florets and wash.
Pour boiling water into the medium saucepan and put the steamer on top.
Add cauliflower florets and cover with a lid.
Let florets steam for about five minutes (we want them fairly firm, so don't overdo the steaming).
Drain florets and put aside.
For the cheese sauce, put flour, butter and milk in a saucepan over a medium heat.
Whisk gently until the butter has melted.
Using a wooden spoon, keep stirring until the sauce has thickened nicely.
Add the cheeese (saving a little for topping) and stir until dissolved.
Mix in the mustard.
Place the steamed cauliflower florets into the glass dish and cover with the cheese sauce.
Sprinkle remaining cheese and some black pepper over top and bake in center of oven.
Cook until topping goes golden brown (about 20-25 mins).
Serve with seasonal vegetables.
