Keto Cauliflower Mac And Cheese

Free Keto Meal Plan: Keto Diet Plan For Beginners Step-By-Step Guide

Unlike any other, this Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese Recipe is amazingly delicious! To make a cheese sauce, there is a special amount of ingredients that’s creamy and loaded with flavor and this recipe nails it!!

You can use riced cauliflower or you can use chopped cauliflower florets. It will look very similar if you cut the cauliflower florets in about the same size of the noodles you would normally use in this non-keto friendly version. I prefer using riced cauliflower too. In every bit of creamy goodness, the cheese to cauliflower ratio is nearly perfect!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large cauliflower head/two bags of riced cauliflower, frozen
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 tbs butter unsalted
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese shredded
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • One tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbs parsley for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Into small bite-size pieces, chop the raw cauliflower.
  2. Boil water and a pinch of salt in a medium sized pot.
  3. To the boiling water, add the raw cauliflower and cook it until it gets tender. Depending on the size of your cauliflower florets, this will take about 5 to 7 minutes. If they are bigger, it may take longer.
  4. Drain the cauliflower and put it aside.
  5. Add the butter, heavy cream, cream cheese, mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika in the empty and still warm pot. (This is the spice that levels it out and adds a depth of flavor you will love so don’t skip the paprika!)
  6. Until it all melts and comes together like a gravy, stir the ingredients over medium heat.
  7. Put warm cauliflower and until all the sauce has coated the florets, stir it.
  8. Add the cheeses and until it has completely melted, stir.
  9. Top with parsley.
  10. Serve warm.
