Keto Mac and Cheese {Gluten-Free, Clean Eating}

25 minutes
Calories 660kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower (I used a fairly large head, about the equivalent of 4-5 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter (I used a fairly large head, about the equivalent of 4-5 cups)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 12 ounces cheddar cheese (I used a fairly large head, about the equivalent of 4-5 cups)
  • black pepper (I used a fairly large head, about the equivalent of 4-5 cups)

Instructions

  • Break the head of cauliflower into very small florets, discarding the thick stems.
  • You should have 4-5 cups of cauliflower florets, in the end.
  • Place the cauliflower florets in a large, deep sided saute pan.
  • Add the butter, water, cream ,salt, garlic powder and mustard.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium/high heat.
  • Cover and let cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until cauliflower is tender.
  • If the liquid is still thin, let it cook, uncovered, until it has reduced to the consistency of heavy cream.
  • Add 2/3 of the shredded cheese to the cauliflower and toss into the sauce until it melts and sauce becomes creamy.
  • Taste sauce and add more salt, if needed.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle with the remaining cheese and a grating of fresh black pepper.
  • Assuming your pan is oven proof, set it under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Serve immediately.
