I love cauliflower and this is one of my favorite recipes. I have been making it for years. The horseradish makes it special. I always add the full 2 tablespoons.

Instructions Checklist
  • Chop cauliflower stems into small pieces. Measure out 1/2 cup of cauliflower florets and chop into small pieces. Set aside.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower florets and cook uncovered until crisp tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain. Toss with Parmesan cheese and chives.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Add reserved stems and chopped florets, shallot, and garlic; cook and stir until tender but not brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat until broth evaporates completely, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Pour 1 cup heavy cream into the skillet and puree mixture with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir in horseradish, salt, and black pepper. Transfer to a baking dish and add blanched florets; toss to coat evenly with cream mixture. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons heavy cream and top with Gruyere cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 1/4 cup chopped onion for the shallot if preferred. Substitute 1 teaspoon garlic powder for the minced garlic if desired.

Tips

You can use half-and-half instead of heavy cream to lighten the dish up.

Tips

Use a food processor instead of an immersion blender if preferred.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Made this for Christmas. It s a lot of work for a side especially on a holiday. Even grated my own cheese. Did not feel that it was really worth it. Wish there were instructions if it could be made ahead. I didn t want to take a chance with company coming. Read More

I am not a cauliflower fan but my husband is. I surprised him with this recipe and he was so happy! My 88 yr old mom loved it too.I found this recipe in the Allrecipe’s Mag. I made it exactly as written except I used a cheese blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack. I will remember Gruyere for next time. I imagine it will be even better with that yummy cheese. My only suggestion would be to take care with the immersion blender. I had to pour the sauce into a deep pan to keep from spraying the sauce all over the kitchen. Read More
