Creamy Cauliflower Mac

As the weather gets cooler, I have been craving some “comfort food”. Surprisingly, this creamy cauliflower hit the spot and is a much healthier option than traditional mac n’ cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • dash paprika

Instructions:

  1. Cut the cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces away from the stems.
  2. Steam the cauliflower by placing the cauliflower in a large microwavable bowl with 1/4 cup water. Cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is fork tender.
  3. While cauliflower is steaming, place onion in a large saucepan with 1 Tbsp olive oil and cook until translucent.
  4. Transfer the steamed cauliflower into the saucepan with the onion. Add coconut milk, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper, and stir to combine.
  5. Garnish with paprika and enjoy!
