Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Serves 6

These are a great alternative to traditional mac and cheese.... No one will know there is cauliflower in it and I lays love finding ways to add veggies in whatever I make.


  • 1 pack of 16 oz of brown rice pasta
  • 2 cups of cauliflower rice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2-3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk (I used almond milk)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cups of cheese ( I used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar)
  • 3/4 cups of breadcrumbs


Preheat the oven at 400F and spray a 9"x13" baking dish.

Cook the pasta according to package instruction. When cooked, drain and combine with the caulirice.

Heat up the olive oil in a pan and cook the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes. Add flour and cook for another minute. Whisk in the milk raising the heat to medium and keep on stirring until it thickens ( 3-5 minutes). Remove from the heat and add 1 cup of cheese and mix until smooth.

Combine the sauce with the pasta and caulirice and transfer to the greased dish. Top with breadcrumbs and remaining cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and breadcrumbs golden brown.
