Cheesy Cauliflower

Cheesy Cauliflower
It's good to share

 

When I feel my clothes fitting a little too tight, a fast way to lose a few pounds is to go low carb for a little while. This is one of my very favorite low carb dishes because it tastes like cheesy mashed potatoes. 

This is a great way to fix cauliflower to actually get people (including kids) to eat it. That’s because it’s filled with cheese!

If you’re watching your carbs it’s a great recipe and substitute for potatoes because it has very little carbs-the cream cheese has a few. I’ve used fresh and frozen cauliflower, and both work fine, but drain it well (especially the frozen) or you’ll end up with a watery mess.

You really don’t miss eating the carbs when you eat this with your meal, and sometimes I reheat a bowl for lunch the next day. One of my very favorites.
