Preparation

Wash the cauliflower, separate the florets and boil. Take a casserole and smear the bottom of the dish with some béchamel sauce. Arrange the well-drained cauliflower florets over the sauce. Add the diced smoked cheese, some more béchamel sauce (a few teaspoons, not too much), and finally a sprinkling of parmesan and breadcrumbs. Bake at 200°C for 30 minutes. Serve hot and with the cheese well melted.

Tips
You should eat cooked cauliflower rather than raw: uncooked cauliflower contains a substance which, when ingested raw, could slow down the function of the thyroid. It is therefore inadvisable to it raw, especially for those suffering from hypothyroidism.
Trivia
Cauliflower is rich in vitamin C, iron, phosphorus, folic acid and potassium. It therefore has the following potential properties: anti-cancer, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and so on. So, let's get more cauliflower in our winter diet!
