Creamy Cauliflower

I hated cauliflower with a passion until I was in my 20s. Why? I don’t really know. Maybe it was the smell as they were cooking or how they looked. Now? Love it. I can’t get enough cauliflower and use it often in recipes. Isn’t it funny how tastes change as you age?

The Dijon mustard is a powerful addition to this creamy sauce. If you aren’t a fan of the strong flavour, use less of it or simply omit it. I love Dijon mustard so I said the more, the merrier!

We served it with some baked chicken. It would also make a wonderful side to your Thanksgiving dinner. Hopefully, it will entice some picky eaters to try it and maybe even to convert them to cauliflower fans.
