Ingredients

5 cup  fresh cauliflower
3 tbsp  white all purpose flour
1.3333 cup  fat free milk
0.125 tsp  ground nutmeg
0.3333 cup  Cheese, fontina, shredded
1 tbsp  fresh chives
0.125 tsp  black pepper
2 tsp  olive oil
2 oz  sliced whole wheat bread
1 tbsp  chopped parsley
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Steam cauliflower in a large pot with a steamer until tender, about 7-8 minutes. Drain and keep warm.
  3. Whisk together the flour, milk, and nutmeg in a pot over medium heat; cook, stirring often. As mixture begins to thicken stir constantly, this should take about 8-10 minutes. Remove pot from heat and stir in the cheese, chives, and pepper.
  4. Lightly coat the bottom of a shallow baking dish with 1/2 teaspoon of the olive oil. Place the cauliflower in the dish and top with the cheese sauce.
  5. Place torn up bread into a blender and pulse on and off to form coarse crumbs. Add in the parsley and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil and pulse to blend. Sprinkle bread mixture evenly over the cauliflower and cheese.
  6. Bake until bubble and lightly browned, about 15 minutes, serve immediately.
