Perfect winter dish!

Ingredients: (Serves 3 – 4)

Cauliflower, boiled in salty water and drained, the florets incorporated
1 medium onion, cubed
1 – 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
150 – 200 grams of minced meat
2 – 3 tomatoes, peeled and cubed (you can use tomato puree as well)
1 carrot, sliced and boiled
3 spoons of olive oil
Cumin, pepper and salt
For the Mornay sauce:
100 grams of butter
1 glass of milk
2 spoons of flour
Salt and pepper
Half a glass of grated cheese

  1. Sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil for 2 – 3 minutes.
  2. Add the minced meat to the onions and the garlic and simmer for a few minutes more.
  3. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes more.
  4. Lay the cauliflower in an oven dish and spread first the carrots and then the minced meat sauce on top of the cauliflower.
  5. For the Mornay sauce, melt the butter in a sauce pan over low heat and add the flour and stir briskly for 2 – 3 minutes (until the smell of the flour disappears). Pour in the milk slowly and whisk briskly. The mixture will thicken and by whisking it briskly you will get a creamy sauce. Add the spices and the cheese and continue simmering until the cheese melts.
  6. Pour the Mornay sauce on the meat and cook in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes (or until the topping gets a bit of colour)
