Mac n Cheese - No Mac - Just Cauliflower

Bruce Hoffman


I love Mac & Cheese - except all of that pasta sometimes is not the best for me - so a great substitute - and now that's all I do - is make it with cauliflower

Just as tasty and a ton less calories

How to Make Mac n Cheese - No Mac - Just Cauliflower


  1. Prep by shredding a block of cheddar cheese ( or you can use already grated- but it is fresher if you grate your own - but takes more time)
  2. First time using an Instant Pot for this mac & cheese with no Macaroni
  3. take green leaves off cauliflower and wash whole.
    trim stem so that it fits into the hole on the metal stand inside the Instant Pot
  4. Put whole cauliflower in stand and set steam for 5 minutes
  5. While cauliflower is steaming - melt butter in a saute pot -
  6. slowly add flour to make a light roux (paste)
  7. slowly add grated cheese a little at a time - stirring so that it melts - add all the cheese
  8. add milk as needed to make the sauce a nice velvety thickness
  9. when cauliflower is done - after 5 minutes - do the quick release - remove cauliflower and place flowerettes in a baking dish - they should come off real easy
  10. pour cheese sauce over cauliflower
  11. bake at 350 until top is golden brown
