  1. Prepare the cauliflower by trimming the stem and leaves off and cutting into bite-size flowerets.
  2. Rinse under cold water. Place the cauliflower pieces into a large pot.
  3. Peel and dice the onion. Add the diced onion to the pot. Fill the pot with cold water and add 1/2 a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper to the pot.

  8. Continue to whisk the sauce until it begins to thicken.   Add the shredded Vermont Cheddar cheese and  3/4 of the shredded Gouda cheese to the thickened sauce in the saucepan.
  9. Continue to stir with the whisk until the cheese has melted into the white sauce and the sauce is lump free.
