This roasted cauliflower mac and cheese works well as a side dish or as a simple main course. You'll love to hear it contains plenty of gooey cheese and crispy bacon!

Ingredients

  • 1 large cauliflower florets only (600g)
  • 2 small heads of broccoli florets only (315g)
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 6 small slices of streaky bacon 90g

Cheese Sauce and Cheese Topping

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1.5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup / 240ml heavy/double cream
  • 3/4 cup / 90g shredded mozzarella
  • 2/3 cup / 150g cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup / 60g shredded cheddar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F / 200C /180 fan.
  • Place the cauliflower and broccoli florets on a non stick baking tray and toss with olive oil and salt. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Add the chopped bacon and bake for a further 20 minutes until cooked and the broccoli slightly crisp.
  • Meanwhile, in a sauce pan heat the butter and garlic over medium heat.
  • Cook until the garlic starts to become fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add heavy/double cream, 1/2 cup (60g) of mozzarella, cream cheese, and 1/2 of the cheddar cheese. Stir until melted using a hand whisk and then simmer on a low heat for about 2 minutes until fully melted. Stir through 2 - 4 tbsp of almond milk (or water) if you prefer a thinner sauce.
  • Add the broccoli, cauliflower and bacon to a baking dish. Pour over the cheese sauce and top with the remaining cheddar and mozzarella.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and slightly golden on top.

Notes

I like to top my Keto mac n cheese with cracked black pepper and 1 tsp of chopped chives. If you are a bacon person, you could also sprinkle over more chopped streaky bacon!
Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. This recipe freezes well, too.
