Cauliflower and Cheese Recipe

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

This recipe comes from the Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond. I happened to see this on Food Network about the time I started experimenting with Keto Diet recipes. This vegetable based meal fit right it and was amazing. I added some extra diced red peppers to give it an extra kick!

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, plus more for the pan
1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
Hot sauce, as needed
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
One 4-ounce log fresh goat cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan



Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking dish with butter.

Cook the cauliflower in the boiling water until just crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well.

In a large saucepan, heat the milk and butter over medium heat. Whisk in the dry mustard and add some hot sauce, salt and pepper. Just before the milk comes to a boil, turn off the heat and stir in the pepper jack and goat cheese. When melted and smooth, stir in the cauliflower. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle over the Parmesan.

Bake until the top is golden brown and the mixture is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
