Check out my Keto version of Mac and Cheese! This is one the whole family will love!
1 head Cauliflower (large, broken into florets)
6 slices Bacon (chopped into large bits)
1/3 cup Nutritional Yeast
1 1/4 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk (or carton coconut milk)
1 tsp Xanthum Gum (or arrowroot powder for AIP)
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (to taste)
- Separate cauliflower into florets and put in a large pot to boil/steam. Water should be about an inch. Cover with lid.
- In a separate frying pan, chop bacon and fry until crispy soft. Remove from pan and put aside, but leave grease in the pan.
- In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients. Whisk till smooth. Pour into frying pan with bacon grease and whisk over low heat till warm and slightly thickened.
- Drain cauliflower when it is quite soft. Break into bite-size pieces with a wooden spoon. Add bacon and the sauce to the cauliflower. Mix till sauce is covering everything and serve.
I made a huge mistake when I made this because I used unsweetened almond milk but I did not notice that it was vanilla flavoured. It didn’t taste bad, just odd, almost like Rice Krispie cake and bacon. I will make it again with unflavoured milk….apparently once I learn to read.

Can this possible be done without the Xanthum gum or Arrowroot powder?

Yes I think that would work as a thickener. But I haven’t tried it myself.
