Cauliflower “Mac N’ Cheese”

Print Recipe
Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 8 cups cauliflower florets (about 1 head)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/8 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (4 ounces)

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2

Toss the cauliflower florets in the oil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Roast until fork-tender and lightly browned in spots, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven but leave the oven on and reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F.

3

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Whisk in the cream and cook 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and stir in all but 2 tablespoons cheese, the table salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir until the cheese melts, then cook, stirring often, until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.

4

Place the cauliflower florets in an 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish or four 10-ounce ramekins. Pour the cheese sauce on top. Sprinkle the top of the cauliflower with the remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.

5

Bake until the cheese is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
