Are you craving macaroni and cheese? This two-ingredient recipe gives you a healthy alternative by replacing macaroni with cauliflower.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup cauliflower
  • 1/4 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

Steam cauliflower in a steamer basket over boiling water in a medium covered sauce pot until tender, about 5 minutes.

Remove to a bowl and mash with a fork. Top with cheddar cheese and season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Cauliflower Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cauliflower Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
