Cheesy Cauliflower

GLUTEN-FREE  |  GRAIN-FREE  |  CONTAINS DAIRY  |  DETOX-FRIENDLY


This cup of cheesy goodness brings me back to my childhood, when winters were for sledding and macaroni and cheese was my favorite food. This recipes gives it a grown-up twist with a made-from-scratch spicy aged cheddar cheese sauce. I substituted cauliflower for pasta because, let's be honest, pasta is really just a vehicle for the cheese. So why not use cauliflower? Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower are full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and sulfur-containing compounds like isothiocyanates and indoles that help our bodies detoxify. Strange as it seems, you'll never miss the pasta. And your kids will finally eat their veggies.
