A classic favourite, cauliflower with cheese sauce is a great side dish for almost any roast or stew. Rich and creamy, it's a particularly good comfort food for winter and can be enjoyed on its own or with a salad as a simple meal. Broccoli can be substituted for the cauliflower or use some of both for a more colourful dish.
