If you believe cauliflower is a bit too bland for your liking, this recipe will certainly change your mind. It utilizes frozen cauliflower florets, which means making it can be a cinch. To top things off, it’s also covered in a creamy cheese sauce. I mean, who can say no to that?

By using frozen cauliflower instead of fresh, you can pull out a bag whenever the desire for this recipe arises — it’ll taste as fresh as the day it was picked! It also allows you to take advantage of sales on frozen vegetables, as they are usually less pricey than their fresh counterparts.

The recipe comes together with little fuss. Just coat the florets in olive oil and a zingy spice mixture. While the cauliflower is roasting, you make the cheese sauce by combining evaporated milk and butter over low heat before stirring in the cheese. And just like that, you have a flavor-packed cauliflower side with a kick, covered in a luscious cheese sauce.
