When you add a tasty cheese like Gruyere to cauliflower and spice it up with some curry powder, you make a gratin everyone will want to eat!


  • cooking spray
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese, divided
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • 3 teaspoons Madras curry powder, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh bread crumbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray the inside of a medium baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Heat milk in the microwave or in a small saucepan until hot.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, blend in the flour, and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in hot milk and whisk constantly until thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup Gruyere cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced onion, curry powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Pour 1/3 of the sauce on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Distribute cauliflower evenly on top. Pour remaining cheese sauce over the florets.
  6. Combine remaining 1/4 cup of Gruyere with bread crumbs in a bowl. Sprinkle over the sauce and drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
