Cauliflower was never my favorite until recently. I think it's easy to discard foods that you don't think you like because you haven't eaten them in a long time or have never eaten them in a way that you enjoy.

Lately I've been experimenting with cauliflower and trying to find a recipe that I like, as many people seem to love it.

Putting cheese on anything will generally do the trick and that was definitely the case this time.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

The most important thing in this recipe.

is to squeeze the cauliflower as much as possible.

If you leave too much water inside, it will have a soggy taste and nobody likes macaroni and cheese and soft pasta.

I've found that the drier you can get cauliflower, the less it tastes, well … cauliflower.

Other than that, it is very simple.

You don't even have to make a flour roux for this cauliflower mac and cheese.

It's similar to making spinach with cream, just cheese, cheese, and more cheese!

I used a mixture of cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and muenster for this dish.

I usually only use cheddar and cream cheese, but I found that the muenster gave it a little more depth and creaminess.

To fill the plate more like a meal, I added jalapeño slices and spinach.

It's super rich, making a large salad a great addition to this meal.

It is definitely a comforting meal with a twist for me that I can't wait to make for my family again.
