Cheesy cauliflower monster
To make a cheesy cauliflower monster big enough to serve 3-4 children you will need these ingredients:
1 whole cauliflower, cut into pieces
2 heaped teaspoons cornflour
300ml semi-skimmed milk
90g grated, low-fat cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
200g pre-cooked penne pasta (wholegrain is best)
2 radishes and some curly parsley for the eyes (optional)
Remember to wash your hands before you touch the food!
Ask an adult to help you get together these pieces of equipment:
oven with a grill
First, ask an adult to boil the cauliflower in water for about 15 minutes until the cauliflower is soft.
When the cauliflower is cooked, drain it using a colander.
Spoon the cauliflower into an ovenproof dish.
Next, put the rest of the milk in a saucepan.
Ask an adult to help you heat it on the hob until it is boiling.
Add the cornflour paste.
Keep stirring until the milk becomes thicker.
Pour the cheesy sauce over the cauliflower.
Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top.
Ask an adult to help you grill the cheesy cauliflower until it is golden and bubbling.
Finally, ask an adult to take the cauliflower cheese out of the grill.
Add some pasta spines, some radish eyes and some curly parsley eyebrows to finish your cheesy cauliflower monster!
