Cheesy Cauliflower

I have been an open critic of the books that tell you to hide vegetables in brownies and other 'treats' to trick children into eating them. I think it's a cruddy approach and you never teach your children how to enjoy what is good for them.

I recently got an e mail from a Mom who told me she HAD to hide the cauliflower in brownies because if she just steamed it her daughter would not eat it.

On what planet are the only two choices steaming and brownies?

Kids and adults love this dish, okay it's not low fat so adults should eat it less often, but it's good.

1 Head of Cauliflower sliced
1 large onion sliced
1/4 cup flour for dusting
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup grated cheese (cheddar, jack, swiss, it's all good)
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
A good dose of salt
A few grinds of pepper
A few dots of butter

Toss the vegetables in a bowl and dust with the flour and toss. Add in everything else and stir til mixed. Pour into buttered casserole and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. The cauliflower should be tender, the cheese sauce bubbly and gorgeous. Eat.
