  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste


Step 1

Add the cauliflower to a large pot of salted boiling water and cook until tender, about 4-5 minutes.

Step 2

Drain well, then add back to the pot and cook for 3 minutes, so the pieces are dry. Season the cauliflower with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Melt butter in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Sprinkle with flour and stir until pasty, about 1 minute.

Step 4

Drizzle in the heavy cream while whisking and whisk until smooth. Stir while the sauce heats. Stir in the mascarpone. Cook for 1-2 more minutes, until hot and bubbly.

Step 5

Drizzle the cheese sauce over the cauliflower and serve.
