This is not Chef Ottolenghi’s first recipe on my blog and it certainly won’t be the last, I have to say that I have never been disappointed with his recipes. All of his recipes are original and full of flavor.
Thanks to his books I discovered a new way of cooking and eating vegetables. The proof is this « mustardy cauliflower cheese » gratin, which changes from the gratin with bechamel sauce that I used to make.
This cauliflower gratin is the ultimate comfort food, besides I like this kind of dishes that don’t take a long time to make but are so good. The recipe is from his book “Simple”, and it’s an easy and simple recipe to make and really delicious. The use of cumin seeds, mustard powder, green chili and curry give this dish an Indian touch, which I really love.
However, I advise you to use a good aged cheddar for a good result. This dish can go perfectly with a roast chicken or a good pan-fried steak.
