1 tsp salt
2 cups White Sauce
½ tsp nutmeg or cayenne pepper
80g Cheddar cheese, grated
Remove the main stalk and leaves from the cauliflower & broccoli & break into florets.
Place the vegetables in a saucepan and cover with cold water.
Add the salt and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 mins until slightly underdone and still firm.
Drain in a colander & cover to keep warm.
In the meanwhile make a White Sauce and stir in the nutmeg or cayenne pepper.
Add the cauliflower & broccoli to the saucepan with the White Sauce and fold to coat all over.
Transfer the vegetables and sauce to an oven-proof serving dish & sprinkle with the cheese.
Grill in the oven for 5 mins until the cheese has melted and serve.
