The perfect low carb substitute to Mac and Cheese!
Serve with a steak and greens for the perfect meal, or enjoy by itself. Comfort food at its best!
Yields: 6 serves
1 cup of cream
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
4 rashers of bacon (optional)
1Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Get out a baking dish and set aside.
2Wash and chop up the cauliflower into florets and boil/steam in a pot with a little boiling water at the bottom for about 5-10 minutes or until tender.
3In the meantime, dice up the bacon and peel the garlic. Fry the bacon in its own fat until crispy. Crush and add the garlic when the bacon is nearly done and cook for a minute. Turn down the heat and add in the cream, cheese, mustard and pepper. Stir through and turn off the heat.
4Pour over the cauliflower and coat well. Taste for flavour and add salt and pepper as needed. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until slightly golden and bubbling. Sprinkle with a little fresh parsley if you like, or serve as it is. Can be enjoyed on its own or on the side of some meat or veg.
