  • 1 Large Cauliflower

  • 1 Large Broccoli

  • 80g of Plain Flour

  • 1 Chorizo Ring

  • 700ml of Whole Milk

  • 1 Bunch of Rosemary

  • 2 Garlic Cloves

  • 250g of Cheddar

  • 100g of Parmesan

  • 100g of Breadcrumbs

  • Mixed Salad


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/356°F.

  2. Crumble your chorizo into a pan and fry on a medium heat until crispy.

  3. Add 2 sliced garlic cloves and fry for 30 more seconds. Remove the garlic and chorizo from the pan, leaving the oil.

  4. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan along with 80g of plain flour. Beat it together with a whisk and once it has formed a roux (once it has combined) start adding your milk. Add it bit by bit, beating it in. Once you’ve added it all, you should have a nice thick white sauce.

  5. Add 220g of grated cheddar, 90g of grated Parmesan, salt and a lot of pepper. Mix it in. Once melted, re-add your chorizo and garlic. Stir it in.

  6. Break your cauliflower and broccoli into florets, add to the sauce and give it a good stir.

  7. Once everything is evenly coated, top the dish with a generous grating of cheddar, Parmesan, a handful of rosemary leaves and a large handful of breadcrumbs.

  8. Place in the oven for 50 minutes until nice and golden.

  9. Serve it up with a simple side salad and enjoy!
