One of my semi-regular rants is about cauliflower cheese. So you may have heard it before. But I just don't understand how cauliflower cheese got relegated from main course to side dish. It's substantial enough to be a meal on its own, and a roast dinner doesn't really need the extra richness it provides.
This version, which made a very satisfactory dinner for the two of us, with a bit left over, uses a couple of other brassicas for extra colour, flavour and nutrition. Cauliflower, beautiful romanesco and lovely broccoli. So pretty.
Then I topped it with bacon lardons and a rich cheese sauce, panko breadcrumbs and some extra cheese for crunch. It would have served 3-4 with a jacket potato each.
