Creamy Cauliflower Mac N’ Cheese

Here’s a classic recipe that everyone recognizes, but with a twist! Rather than pasta, this mac n’ cheese is made with cauliflower florets. It’s simple, healthy, and super tasty! Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Ingredients:
3-4 cups cauliflower florets
1 cup milk
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or you can use whatever flavor of cheese you’d like!)
4 strips of bacon
2 tbsp green onions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Fry bacon, set aside.
2. Steam cauliflower. You can use a steamer, or use the microwave. Place florets in microwave safe bowl.  Add small amount of water to the bowl, just enough to cover the bottom. Cover bowl with microwave-safe lid or plate, and microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until florets are tender. Drain off excess water.
3. In medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in cornstarch. Once mixed, add in milk, salt, and pepper.  Stir frequently to keep milk from burning. Bring to boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes.
4. Remove pan from heat, and stir in cheese. Stir until melted. Add in cauliflower.
5. Divide Mac n’ Cheese into four serving dishes. Crumble bacon. Top each dish with crumbled bacon and green onions.
