Roasted Cauliflower in Gruyere Cheese Sauce - WW

Vickie Parks


This is great side dish. The cauliflower is topped with Swiss gruyere cheese, and it's oven roasted instead of being steamed or cooked in a saucepan.

It's actually a Swiss recipe (not German). But there is no option for Swiss cuisine, so I picked the closest match possible.
