Cauliflower “Macaroni” & Cheese

Dinner
featured image

I kept hearing about how yummy cauliflower mac & cheese is, so I thought I’d give it a whirl by making it similarly to how I would make regular homemade mac & cheese, with real noodles.

I use an entire head of cauliflower and cut it up small, then warm it up in the microwave to start cooking it for 8 minutes, stirring every 2-3 minutes.  I also preheat my oven and butter a 9×13 glass pan at this time.

Next, it’s time for the cheese sauce!  I start off by warming the heavy whipping cream in the microwave for a minute and a half, setting aside, then melting the butter in a medium pot, then stir in almond flour until it starts bubbling a little, but not browning.  This takes about 2 minutes.

After the butter/almond flour mixture is bubbly, I add in the warmed heavy whipping cream, and stir until the sauce thickens and comes to a boil.  Once boiling, I add in the cheddar cheese, cayenne pepper, himalayan pink salt, & ground pepper, stir that all together, then cook for another 2 minutes, before removing from heat.

I put the cooked cauliflower in the buttered pan, pour the cheese sauce evenly over the cauliflower, then mix gently.  I poke more cheddar cheese throughout the whole thing & bake for about a half hour, or until all cheese is bubbly and browning.  Then serve with a sprinkle of pepper on top!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!  Also, don’t forget to tag #KetoYum, #KetoYumFood, & @KetoYumFood when posting photos to your social media!
