  • 1 head small cauliflower, leaves removed and broken into small florets
  • 1 head broccoli, broken into small florets

For the Cheese Sauce

  • 50 g butter
  • 50 g flour
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 500 ml low fat milk
  • 100 g cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp chives (or spring onions)



  1. In a very large saucepan, cook the cauliflower in boiling salted water for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the broccoli and cook for 3 minutes more. Drain well and transfer to a large ovenproof dish.
  3. To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a small pan.
  4. When foaming, add the flour and mustard powder. Cook it for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  5. Turnoff the heat and add the milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly to get rid of any lumps.
  6. Once half the milk has been added, return on the heat and add the remaining milk.
  7. Keep stirring, bring it to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes until it’s thickened and smooth.
  8. Add most of the cheese and some seasoning. Turn off the heat and add the chives.
  9. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
