When fall rolls around, it seems that we trade in light salads for comforting mac and cheese. Something about the cool weather makes dishes like this loaded cauliflower bake all the more appealing.
The difference between this cheesy cauliflower bake recipe and a bowl of mac and cheese, however, is that the cauliflower bake is still a somewhat low-carb, healthy option to bundle up with.
Made with mashed cauliflower, this gluten-free dish is creamy and hearty, plus it comes with all of your favorite fixings. Topped with sharp cheddar cheese, turkey bacon, and green onions, it’s hard not to go crazy for the irresistible flavor of this low-carb cauliflower bake.
If you’ve never made mashed cauliflower, the process is really simple. You’ll want to cook your cauliflower florets in a pot of boiling water until they’re tender. After that, they’re transferred to a food processor or blender and processed until they’re creamy and smooth.
The cauliflower is then topped with cheese, crumbled bacon, and the green onions, and set inside the oven to bake until the cheese has melted. This healthy cauliflower bake would be absolutely delicious next to a side of oven baked chicken for a fall dinner.
