This was really good! I was looking to incorporate some veggies into my dish and I also appreciated that it did not require baking. I doubled the veggies and blended it with the milk. I used butter instead of oil and added a cup of chopped ham. Delish!
Okay this one is hard to admit. My kids said that this tastes as good as my full fat mac and cheese. Actually... they said it was...*cringe*....creamier. The trick here is pureeing the cauliflower in the blender. I added about 3/4 of a cup of the steaming liquid to the blender. This is where the creaminess comes from. I doubled the recipe. I had to make it taste as close to mine as possible because I was trying to fool my kids. So I added a tsp. of onion powder and a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and a Tbsp of prepared yellow mustard to the cheese/cauliflower mixture. All of the dairy elements were low fat or skim. (the cream cheese was Neufchatel.) I also added extra cauliflower. (By about 2/3 of a cup) My original uses 1/2 cup of butter and 6 cups of whole milk. What an incredibly easy way to cut fat and calories. I LOVE when that happens! This is a Dish of Delish!! Thanks so much for posting the recipe!
Really yummy! The consistency of the sauce is not smooth because of the cauliflower, but that was fine with my family.
I tripled the recipe so I'd have extra to freeze. Also, I like making the roux with butter so I used butter instead of oil and used 3 tbsp butter to 3 tbsp flour, then 3 cup skim milk. The thickness of the cheese sauce was perfect. I kept the cream cheese amount the same and the cheddar amount roughly the same but added an additional 1/2 cup Jarlsberg and increased the amount of cauliflower to adjust for the increase in sauce. Very nice recipe, I would make again, and would probably garnish with Frank's red hot sauce prior to serving.
When I made this dish I added way more cauliflower to the cheese sauce and I also left some florets whole and mixed them into the cheese sauce with the noodles. It was really good for breakfast with an egg on top.
Easy recipe to make. We liked the tanginess of the cream cheese that came through. We made it as called for, but did add a more milk as we were making the cheese sauce (a 1/4 Cup), and the sauce was still very thick. Next time I may cut back a bit on the cream cheese and see if that helps create a creamier sauce. Thanks for the very good Recipe!
Even the toddler and picky 5 year old loved it! I winged it a bit since we didn't have cheddar or cream cheese, so I used havarti and Monterey jack cheeses, and cooked the cauliflower with garlic and onion. We will be trying it again this week by request following the recipe as written. I have pretty high expectations.
This is hands the best recipe for Mac -Cheese and Cauliflower. I just had to add some velveeta cheese.
Lots of times I make mac and cheese and add vegetables to it. Usually broccoli. So much better then just the same old stuff.
Made the cheese sauce with ingredients as directed but made it in the Vitamix. Excellent, creamy sauce!
2 year old picky eater approved!
First time trying a cauliflower mac-n-cheese. Loved it! Obviously, so did the family - nothing left over!
Delicious. I used medium cheddar for more flavor and used 1/2 the cream cheese. So great. Thanks.
A little “sticky” and thick for my texture preference, but very tasty. Will probably add a little milk next time to make it more saucy. I microwaved my cauliflower then mashed it, and it came together with the macaroni easily.
This was great and I will make it again for sure! I may just use the florets of cauliflower and not grind them in a blender. I put steamed shrimp on top. So, scrumptiously delicious!
This was very tasty! My kids even liked the cauliflower in it.
I can now stop searching for a mac & cheese recipe because this is the ONE!! Even my daughter, who will only eat Kraft mac and cheese, loved this! The only thing I did differently was added more milk to get the consistency I wanted; otherwise, it would have been way too thick. Thanks for sharing!
This was amazing
Deee licious!!! The perfect Max and cheese in my book!
This was such a simple recipe and my family loved it. Thank you kindly for posting it. It was super creamy and I added an extra tablespoon of butter, didn't blend the cauliflower as I simply mashed it to give it extra texture. Wonderful dish that I'll definitely make again.
Tasted amazing added chicken as a meat on the side. Did come out a bit thick and rich.
Very creamy & tasty!
great recepie! didnk know it could be so simple.
Awesome! My kids LOVED it!
This was the best & easiest homemade mac we have madea yet! Dbl recipe. Used 2 cups of cauli; but could have done 3. Used mild cheddar and Colby jack (that's what I had). Added the cauliflower to boiling pasta when 2 mins remained. Drained and covered to keep warm (and poss keep steaming cauli). Warmed milk before adding bc my husband thinks that's how to prevent grittiness. Perfectly creamy and very cheesy! We had crispy bacon left from breakfast so we crumbled that over the top.
It turned out great! I didn’t add the flour or the olive oil.
Yum! Didn’t have cauliflower so used cooked diced carrots. Super good. Will be trying it with cauliflower next time.
The proportion are perfect. Changes I did: macaroni made with chickpeas, vegan mozarella "cheese", vegan cream "cheese", miz of cauliflower and broccoli instead of just cauliflower, flaxseed milk. It turned out to be one the best mac and cheese I had tried. Shocked of the great taste of vegan "cheeses".
So yummy! You do not even realize there is cauliflower in it. Absolutely yummy!
Absolutely great!!! Added a bit more cauliflower, some zucchini, a bit of other spices.
