This is one of my favourite ways to eat cauliflower. With a small bit of effort, it makes a tasty side on the plate.

- To prepare the white sauce, firstly melt the butter and add the flour, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon until the flour has been fully incorporated in the melted butter.
- Gradually add the milk, a little at a time, continuously stirring until a smooth sauce has been achieved.
- Add the cheese and the egg yolk at this stage to give a richer sauce.
- Cover with a layer of clingfilm to prevent a skin forming.
- Preheat the oven 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
- Grease a large baking tray using half the butter.
- Place the cauliflower florets and garlic into the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, then add the remaining butter.
