Say Cheese! Baked Cheese and Cauliflower

Cheese and Cauliflower bakeAn event that has been big in the news lately is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 space program. It has been a full half-century since mankind placed the first footstep upon the surface of the moon. Apart from being a heroic achievement of human science, engineering and courage, the moon landing also conclusively disproved the old saying that ‘the moon is made of cheese’.

Luckily for us, there is still plenty of cheese on good old planet Earth. Try out this recipe for Cheesy Baked Cauliflower from the #soupedupkitchen.
