  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup medium or whipping cream


1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Blend in the flour, salt, and cayenne and stir over medium heat until the mixture foams. Stir in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower and reduce the heat. Cover and cook at a gentle bubble for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender. Lift out 6 of the most attractive flowerets and set aside. Stir in the lemon juice.
