Great alternative to mac 'n' cheese! My kiddos LOVE it! My daughter helped make the cheese sauce and was her favorite part :) This is a great meatless dish by itself or as a side dish with any grilled meat .

  • 8 c. cauliflower, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 3 tbs. flour, spelt, whole-grain, organic
  • 2 c. milk, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured cows, organic
  • 1 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 2 c. cheddar cheese, mild, raw, organic
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, powder, organic
  • 2 egg, yolk, free-range or cage free, organic
  • 2/3 c. breadcrumbs, made from sprouted whole-grain bread, organic

Preheat oven to 350°F. Steam the cauliflower florets until tender in a pot of lightly salted water for about 6 minutes, then drain.

In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter and whisk in flour and cook for 1 full minute, whisking constantly. Add minced garlic and milk, stirring constantly over medium heat until mixture thickens.

Remove from heat and stir in shredded cheddar cheese, cayenne pepper, and egg yolks, whisking constantly until smooth.

Butter a 9x13 glass pan, add cauliflower and pour cheese sauce over the cauliflower making sure to coat the pieces well. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
