This cheesy cauliflower bake recipe by  The Cooking Foodie on YouTube is a healthy alternative to mac and cheese. It’s a low-carb recipe that fits a keto diet. I love cauliflower mac and cheese, but I’ve always failed to make it at home. After watching this tutorial, I want to attempt to make this because it’s a great way to eat my vegetables and enjoy one of my favorite side dishes without loads of calories. Some people may be skeptical about this because it’s a vegetable mac and cheese, but I prefer this to traditional macaroni and cheese sometimes. I know that mac and cheese make me feel sluggish because it’s a comforting food, but when I eat this version I feel great.



  • 1 large head of Cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 4 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated plus extra for topping 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


First, in a large pot with salt, boil the cauliflower florets and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Preheat the oven to 400F. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat, and add crushed garlic. Saute for about 1-2 minutes then add flour and stir consistently for 1 minute. Gradually pour in the milk while stirring.
