Cauliflower Cheese with a hint of mustard

Cauliflower Cheese with mustard is a delight, The crunch of the perfectly cooked cauliflower and warming mustard with creamy cheese

Some argue that this is a side/ accompaniment dish, not a main. But why can’t it be both? Goes great with rotated chicken or Beef wellington.
