Cauli’ N Cheese

As for many people, Mac n’ Cheese was always a comfort food in my house when I was little. And so, I wanted to take a crack at making a more grown-up version. Therefore I eliminated the cartoon-shaped noodles and replaced them with (you know me) cauliflower!And added some sun-dried tomatoes to complete the look. Very classy and mature, if I must say 😉

Not to say kids won’t like this too. I’m sure if I had been exposed to this when I was little, I would have deemed this comfort-like food as well!

Ingredients:

4 cups cauliflower, chopped into small florets 

2/3 cup plain yogurt 

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese

1/2 tsp paprika 

1/2 tsp garlic powder 

salt and pepper, to taste

sun-dried tomatoes 

Directions: 

Steam cauliflower until you can pierce it with a fork. Set aside. 

Combine yogurt, cheeses, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a pot (Note: make sure to do this before placing over heat). Place over low heat and stir constantly until cheese has melted. Take off heat, stir in desired amount of sun-dried tomatoes, and pour over steamed cauliflower.

  1. Looks delicious! I will have to try with yogurt. I usually take a more traditional approach with the sauce. Here is a version I made with leftover ham..

  2. It sounds like a delicious sauce – I’d still be tempted to have it with pasta instead of cauliflower though!
