Cheesy Cauliflower Gratin

Nobody will be able to resist this cheesy cauliflower gratin! It’s the perfect way to get picky eaters to eat their vegetables.




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Fill a large soup pot 2/3 full with water and bring to a boil.
  3. Boil cauliflower for 4 minutes, so it is cooked slightly but still crunchy. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat olive oil on medium heat in a skillet. 
  5. Add flour, and whisk continuously for 1-2 minutes to make a roux. (The roux might be grainy when you first add the flour. Whisking will make the roux smooth).
  6. Heat almond milk until it is warm (not boiling). 
  7. Add heated milk to the roux, whisking continuously for another 1-2 minutes until smooth and thickened.
  8. Once sauce is thickened, add cheese until melted.
  9. Spread a thin layer of cheese sauce over the bottom of a cast iron skillet.
  10. Add cauliflower, then pour remaining cheese sauce over cauliflower.
  11. Top with more parmesan cheese. I used about 1/4 cup.
  12. Bake for 25 minutes until cheese sauce is melted and cauliflower is fork tender.
  13. Turn on broiler and broil for 1-2 minutes until top is browned and crispy.
  14. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately while hot. Just be careful not to touch the skillet!
