Playing The Galloping Gourmet's Cauliflower with Carrot Cheese Sauce
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 3 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced into rounds (yield 1 cups)
  • 1/2 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch cayenne
  • Pinch cumin
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Dusting of smoked paprika

Steam cauliflower 18 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Set aside.

Cook the carrots in the evaporated milk and water, covered, in a medium saucepan, 10-15 minutes or until very soft. Place the carrots and cooking liquid, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice in a blender, and whiz for 2-3 minutes or until smooth and glossy. Add the salt, cayenne, and cumin, and whiz to mix.

Place the cauliflower in a small baking dish. Spoon the carrot sauce over the cauliflower and scatter the Parmesan cheese over the top. Brown under a preheated broiler 4 inches from heat and serve, garnished with a dusting of smoked paprika.
