Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Cauliflower Mac 'n Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Soak, wash, and check the cauliflower (if needed). Chop it into half-inch chunks that resemble macaroni. Place cauliflower in a ziplock bag. Add olive oil, garlic powder, and salt and shake well to coat the cauliflower pieces. Place cauliflower on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

  3. Bake for 45 minutes.

  4. Uncover and add the cheddar cheese on top. Bake uncovered for an additional 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted, bubbly, and golden.

  5. Pair this “mock”-o-roni with a starch like a root veggie soup, wholesome bread, or even another pasta dish for a balanced meal.

Note:

Aim for fresh cauliflower for the best outcome.

    There are some green scallions sprinkled on top for some added decoration. It is best fresh but you could reheat.

    “Mock” a Roni & Cheese

    If using frozen cauliflower (yes, I saw the note that said fresh is best), how many packages should I use?

    Hi! I would recommend 2 bags for 2 sheet pans- I would also try to cut up the frozen cauliflower florets into smaller pieces.
