Amazing Cauliflower Souffle
Cheesy, fluffy, and packed with yumminess. I mashed the cooked cauliflower quite finely with some small chunks remained, which gave the fluffy souffle additional bites, and we really enjoyed and loved the combination.

Cook cauliflower in boiling, salted water until tender, drain well and mash.

Meanwhile, bring milk to a boil in another saucepan.
Add hot milk to butter-flour mixture and cook, stirring over medium heat until sauce thickens and is smooth.
Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Lightly beat egg yolks and stir into sauce.
Then stir in cheese and cauliflower until smooth.
In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.
Fold cauliflower mixture gently but thoroughly into beaten egg whites.
