  1. 1 head cauliflower
  1. Fresh chives, chopped
  1. 3/4 cup gruyère cheese

2. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Wash and slice cauliflower, toss with olive oil, and place on baking sheet to roast for 30-45 minutes or until tender and light, golden brown.

4. Wash and chop chives and blend into mixture along with cauliflower.
