My beloved cauliflower – is there any dish that you can’t lend yourself to? I made this cheesy cauliflower casserole, and after making it and gobbling it down, I realized that it really resembled macaroni and cheese, but without the glutenous noodles! So, if you’re looking for a yummy and healthy alternative to mac and cheese, you’ve gotta give this a try!
On top of it tasting so much like mac and cheese, it’s main ingredient is cauliflower, and you now what that means? It means that it is loaded with goodness and nutrition!
Okay, all this healthiness in a dish that tastes like macaroni and cheese – ummmm, awesome, right?
This dish would make an excellent side dish, or it can make for a great meal in itself. Either way, you will not regret trying this stuff – it’s delicious!
- 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 2 Tablespoons brown rice flour
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 2 cups shredded cheese of your choice (I used goat’s milk cheddar)
1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the cauliflower florets. Cook until the cauliflower just becomes tender (about 5-7 minutes). Drain and set aside.
2.) In a large mixing bowl, add your flour followed by your almond milk and beaten egg. Stir to combine. Add 1 cup of the shredded cheese to the mixture and stir to combine.
3.) Add the cauliflower to the mixture and stir to combine and coat completely.
4.) Place the cauliflower mixture into an 8 x 11 baking dish. Top with the remaining cup of shredded cheese.
5.) Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes until the cheese is slightly brown and bubbly, and the cauliflower is completely tender.
6.) Use a spatula to cut out individual servings. Transfer to a plate and serve.
Super tasty, easy, and so so good for you! Enjoy! 🙂
