It’s all about plating!! I love the combination of watermelon and feta cheese, so I simply cubed some up and made a checkerboard display. I drizzled with some blueberry balsamic vinegar on top. Delish.

Below, I know you can’t see it very well, but it’s probably my favorite dish I’ve made all summer. It’s Baked Cauliflower with cheese, capers and panko.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup grated sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Gruyere
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 a jar of capers, don’t worry, it’s not that much!
  • 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs

Directions:

  1. melt the butter in a medium pot
  2. mean while cut up the cauliflower into bite size pieces and wash
  3. add flour to the melted butter and whisk until it’s dissolved
  4. add milk and whisk until the rue is fully combined
  5. add in cheese to melt
  6. lower heat and add the capers and cauliflower
  7. stir and let it simmer (cover if you’d like it to cook faster)
  8. Stir here and there, just so the cheese doesn’t collect at the bottom
  9. The cauliflower is finished when it becomes a bit translucent and soft to touch
  10. place into a baking pan and top with panko bread and more grated cheese if you’d like
  11. Bake at 400 degree or until the top has crusted and colored

Enjoy!!
