Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

5.0
2 Ratings
This cauliflower mac and cheese is the ultimate hidden veggie recipe! By cutting the cauliflower up small and mixing it in with noodles and cheese, it almost melts into the background of this dish - while giving a bit of a texture boost to mac and cheese’s usual silkiness. Use whatever cheese sauce you like- but we found that the jarred stuff not only saves time but gives the sauce a lovely creamy texture even after it comes out of the oven.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 2
Trim and core the Cauliflower (1) . Roughly cut into small pieces.
Step 3
In a small bowl, combine the Breadcrumbs (1/3 cup) and Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/3 cup) and set aside.
Step 4
Add Kosher Salt (1/2 Tbsp) to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Add the Elbow Macaroni (4 1/2 cups) and cook until 1 minute before al dente according to the packaging. Drain and set aside.
Step 5
In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the Butter (1 Tbsp) over medium-high heat and cook the Garlic (1 clove) for 1 minute. Add the cauliflower and a generous pinch of salt and cook until the cauliflower has softened, 8-10 minutes.
Step 6
Turn heat to low. Add the Cheddar Cheese Sauce (3 cups) , Milk (1 1/2 cups) , Cream Cheese (1/2 cup) , Onion Powder (1 tsp) , and Dry Mustard (1 tsp) . Stir to combine, then fold in the noodles. Add more splashes of milk if it’s too thick. You want the mixture to be quite runny since it will firm up in the oven.
Step 7
Pour into a baking dish and cover with the parmesan breadcrumbs. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden and bubbling.
Step 8
Garnish with more parmesan on top and Scallions (1 Tbsp) . Then serve.
