Method

25 min
 

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

1 Remove the casing from the chorizo. Transfer to a large pan and cook over medium heat, stirring and chopping to break up the meat as it cooks. Set aside.

2 Add the butter to the same pan and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the thyme, cauliflower and broccoli and sauté for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

3 Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cream cheese, mozzarella, chives and cooked chorizo.

4 Spoon into a baking dish and sprinkle the Cheddar cheese on top. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden on top.

Tip: To blanch the vegetables, submerge them in rapidly boiling water for 90 seconds then remove with a slotted spoon and immediately dip into ice-cold water to stop the cooking process.
