Cauliflower “Mac” and Cheese

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chopped cauliflower florets
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • 3 tablespoon flour (I used gluten free flour!)
  • 2 cups fat free milk
  • 2 cups freshly grated sharp cheddar
  • Salt & pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Place 1 inch of water in a large pot with 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook until tender crisp, 6 to 7 minutes. Drain and set aside in a large bowl.
  3. 3Heat butter and oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in flour. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring continually 3 – 4 minutes, to cook out the flour.
  5. Add the milk and continue whisking, raising heat to medium-high until it comes to a boil and becomes smooth and thick, about 2 minutes stirring.
  6. Once it becomes thick, remove from heat completely onto another burner if possible. Add the cheddar cheese, ¼ cup at a time mixing well until cheese is all melted.
  7. Stir in cooked cauliflower, then pour into a baking dish and bake until bubbly and golden, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Enjoy!
