Cauliflower "mac" & cheese

We're back with yet another creative way to use cauliflower; this time as a low carb alternative to pasta in a good old "mac" n' cheese recipe. While you still have to keep your portion small with this dish thanks to the gooey delicious cheese, it's a way better alternative to Kraft EZ mac. 

Ingredients: (serves 5)

cauliflower mac n cheese
  • 2 heads of cauliflower, florets chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheese, we used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar
  • 1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs (can also use gluten-free bread crumbs or eliminate entirely)
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2.  Boil the cauliflower florets until tender. The more finely chopped the cauliflower, the more it will resemble macaroni. Drain and pat dry and then place in baking dish
  3. Sprinkle salt evenly and then add cheese evenly to cover the cauliflower
  4. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs across the top of the dish
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and then set oven to broil and broil for 5 minutes, until the top browns
