Spice-Crusted Cauliflower Gratin

Ingredients

  • 1 cauliflower, outer leaves removed
  • 500ml reduced-salt vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 600g pack frozen Essential Waitrose Grilled Vegetable Mix
  • 3 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 60g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 150g Gruyère cheese, grated

Method

  1. Halve the cauliflower, cut each half vertically into 4 thick pieces and place in a frying pan. Add the stock and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 8-10 minutes until tender, turning once. Drain, reserving the stock.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in the frying pan and fry the onion for 5 minutes until lightly browned. Stir in the garlic, then the grilled vegetable mix, tomato purée and reserved stock. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently until thick and pulpy.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium. Combine the remaining olive oil with the chilli, breadcrumbs and cheese. Transfer the vegetable sauce to a shallow heatproof dish and overlap the cauliflower pieces on top. Scatter with the breadcrumb mixture. Grill for 6-7 minutes until the cheese is melting and the breadcrumbs golden.
