A piquant mustard sauce makes this cauliflower dish a delicious accompaniment to grilled meat or fish.
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons flour
6 fl. oz. milk
4 teaspoons prepared mayonnaise
3 teaspoons dry English mustard
1½ teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Prepare and boil the cauliflower. Drain it well and place it on a serving dish. Set aside and keep hot.
Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and add the flour, stirring with a wooden spoon until it forms a roux, or paste. Add the milk, a little at a time, stirring continuously until the mix-ture
is smooth and thick. Return the pan to the heat.
Add the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice and cayenne pepper, stirring con-stantly. Continue to cook, and stir, for 1 to 2
minutes. Pour the mustard sauce over the cauliflower.
