Cauliflower in Parmesan Cream Sauce Recipe: A Creamy 5-Ingredient Cauliflower Casserole Recipe for Tonight (or Thanksgiving)

It's not too early to start planning those Thanksgiving side dishes. This creamy cauliflower recipe is super simple to make and has just five ingredients. You could even skip the baking part and serve it out of the pan. It would be just as delicious. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes or 10 minutes without baking
Total Time: 15 to 30 minutes
Servings: 6 to 8


  • 3 - 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for the top

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Steam the cauliflower until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. 
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepot. Whisk in the flour until smooth. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in the sour cream and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cauliflower. Stir to combine. If not baking, cook about 2 minutes. 
  4. To bake, pour the mixture into a casserole dish. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 10 minutes or until top begins to brown.

Yum! You could lighten it up a bit by using reduced fat sour cream or even Greek yogurt. I love cheese with cauliflower.
