The method

1

Preheat oven to 180°C.

2

Finely chop the garlic and put it into a medium pan on a medium heat with the butter.

3

Once the butter has melted, add in the flour to make a paste, then gradually stir in the milk until smooth.

4

Chop the broccoli (remember you can use the stalk too), and add into the sauce and simmer for around 20 minutes until it is soft and breaking apart.

5

Once tender, grate in half the cheddar and season to your liking. Use a stick blender to whizz the mixture (add milk if too thick) until smooth.

6

Chop your cauliflower and arrange into a baking tray. Pour over the broccoli white sauce and sprinkle over the remaining cheddar.

7

Blitz the bread into breadcrumbs, adding in the thyme, olive oil and seasoning. Sprinkle over the cauliflower and bake for one hour or until golden! Enjoy!
