Cauliflower Cheese

We've always adored cauliflower (or Broccoli) in a cheese sauce but slimming world does not allow for our usual recipe so here's one I've put together that gets a similar result. It's not the creamy, buttery sauce I was used to but at only 2 syns per serving, it'll do nicely
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 6 people


  • 1 Large Cauliflower
  • 100 ml Semi Skimmed Milk
  • 1 Chicken Stock Pot
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 500 g Quark
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard heaped
  • 50 g Parmesan cheese grated
  • 6 Spring Onions Chopped diagonally


  • Split the cauliflower into florets and wash. Also save some of the small inner leaves to use too.
  • Blanche the florets and the leaves in a pan of boiling water until tender then drain well and arrange in an overproof dish, tucking the leaves between the florets.
  • Add the quark, mustard, milk, stock pot and seasoning to a pan and slowly bring to a simmer. Adjust the seasoning then stir in the cornflour mixed in a little cold water to thicken the sauce.
  • Pour over the cauliflower, sprinkle with chopped spring onions and Parmesan cheese and then bake for about half an hour on gas mark 5 until cooked through and starting to brown. For a better result, I sprayed with frylite when baked and finished under the grill for 5 minutes

    I loved the sound of this, Tried this several times, followed instructions, very carefully, but kept splitting.
