Creamy Cauliflower Mac | Thanksgiving Sides

18 November 2020

Okay. I finally stopped eating my Thanksgiving sides and right on time to at least get two recipe's out before next week! Whether you're eating alongside close family or staying home, you should still find a reason to feel thankful and EAT. I have no idea where to even start with cooking a turkey and don't think I actually ever want to learn how (lol) so I think I'll sign myself up for sides now and forever. My first recipe: Creamy Cauliflower Mac. It's super creamy, tastes like a healthier version of Alfredo sauce and takes about 5 ingredients to whip up! This is a vegetarian dish and it can be vegan if you substitute the cheese for vegan cheese - FYI Trader Joe's sells an outstanding shredded almond cheese bag. Anyway, here's what you need and how to make! 


1 Cauliflower head

1 spoonful of Olive Oil

Salt, pepper, garlic salt

1 cup of unsweetened milk - any type of nut milk to keep it vegetarian

Shredded cheese - however much you'd like

How To

1. Chop your cauliflower up into small chunks, then boil in water until soft.

2. Transfer your boiled cauliflower to a blender and add about 1tbsp of salt, garlic salt, two small pinches of black pepper, olive oil and milk.

3. Blend until smooth then pour over your cooked noodles.

TIP: The consistency should be creamy, so if the sauce is too watered down, add more cauliflower (or baking powder/nutritional yeast!) If it's too creamy, you can add more milk until it reaches its perfect state. 

4. After blending the sauce within the noodles, sprinkle shredded cheese over the noodles and pop it into the oven to melt. 

5. Serve warm and enjoy! 

Easy, right? Five ingredients and five easy steps. Of course you can opt to use traditional macaroni, I for some reason am loving spaghetti noodles with everything right now so I used that instead.  If none of this makes sense, head to my latest IG Reel for a visual. I have a sweet side coming up next so don't forget to check back in!
