Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin Mac n Cheese

2012-12-19

Ingredients:

  • Salt
  • 1 small head or bundle broccoli, trimmed into florets
  • 1 small head cauliflower or half a large head, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 1 pound whole-wheat macaroni or penne or other short cut pasta
  • 2 cups sour cream or reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped chives
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and grated or crushed into paste
  • A few drops hot sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups grated extra-sharp Cheddar

Method:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Salt the water and add the broccoli and cauliflower florets. Boil the vegetables for 5 minutes, then remove them with a spider or a strainer and drain. Add the pasta to the water and undercook by about 2 minutes, drain.

Meanwhile, combine the sour cream in a large bowl along with the mustard, chives, garlic, hot sauce and salt and pepper, to taste. Add the pasta and cauliflower and 2/3 of the cheese. Stir to combine, then transfer it to a casserole or baking dish and cover with the remaining cheese. Cool and chill for a make-ahead meal.

To heat and eat, put the casserole on baking sheet and bake it in the middle of a preheated 375 degree F oven until deeply golden and bubbly, about 40 to 45 minutes.

    Great with garlic bread too!

    I’ve been watching You Are What You Eat on BBC America, and Gillian McKeith often shows her clients recipes that include a “cauliflower mash.” I’ve seen some recipes for it online, but a lot of them include ranch dressing, lots of butter, or some kind of cream, but that doesn’t strike me as being the “Gillian” way, especially since it’s offered as a healthier alternative to mashed potatoes. Are there any ways to make it lighter?

    Is in an open bowl good? Sealed in a ziplock? Just leave in the sealed bag they came in?
