On Friday night, CJ and I made Cauliflower Mac n Cheese (sadly, no peas)!
It was really delicious and filling. The recipe I used was from Real Simple. We altered it a little bit just because of what we had on hand for ingredients. My only complaint was that I wished it was a little cheesier. I'll remember to add more cheese next time.
- 12 ounces elbow macaroni
- 1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped
- 4 slices wheat bread bread, torn
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and black pepper
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mexican cheese mix
- 1 1/2 cups reduced-fat sour cream
- 1/2 cup 1 percent milk
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
In a pan, we sauteed the onions. In a food processor, we put the torn-up bread slices, and processed until crumbs were formed. To the bread crumbs, I added the olive oil and salt and pepper.
As the pasta and cauliflower were cooking, I mixed together the sour cream, cheese, mustard, and milk.
The finished product!
Tonight we're making turkey burgers, roasted cauliflower, and sweet potato fries. Yumm yumm yumm.
To roast the cauliflower, I preheated the oven to 450*. I put the cauliflower in a bowl and coated them with olive oil Then we laid them on a baking sheet along with the sweet potato fries.
