CAULIFLOWER & SPINACH GRATIN

cauliflower gratin FPTwo of my girlfriends came over last-minute for dinner the other day, both on vegetarian and gluten free diets. I admit they caught me off guard, so I kind of threw some things together. I had a head of cauliflower, some frozen spinach and a bunch of leftover cheese. I turned these basic ingredients into a gratin, which turned out to be excellent and easy to make, so I had to share it with you (with a few adjustments).directionscipe Card
