Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C/400 F
  • Remove the outer leaves and the stem from the cauliflower. Place it in a heatproof bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 8-10mins until it is tender. If you prefer not to use a microwave you could also steam it
  • Meanwhile make a batch of the cheese sauce as per the recipe. set aside in a warm place
  • Finely chop the bacon and cook in a frypan/skillet until it is crispy. Set aside in a warm place
  • Finely chop the chives
  • In a small bowl combine the olive oil and adobo seasoning 
  • Once the cauliflower is tender remove from the bowl and place it on an oven proof tray lined with non-stick paper
  • Brush the olive oil mixture all over the outside of the cauliflower. I found this was easy with a pastry brush
  • Place the cauliflower in the oven and cook until golden brown all over, approximately 30 mins
  • Remove the cauliflower from the tray and place on your serving dish
  • Pour over the cheese sauce and sprinkle with bacon and chives then serve. I have found this works best if the cheese sauce is just warm , not hot. It will heat up from the heat of the cauliflower anyway
