Healthy and Yummy Cauliflower Mac and Cheese


Healthy and Yummy Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

By Sloane Davis

We hear a lot about ricing cauliflower as alternative to potato and pasta but a mac and cheese that doesn’t skimp on cheese and leaves everyone a cauliflower believer needs to be shared. Please enjoy and let me know if you liked it!


1 pound (about a head) cauliflower
1 cup 2% Shredded Mexican Cheese
2 ounces 0% Plain Greek Yogurt
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Garlic powder

Yields 4 servings
Macros: calories 110, 11g carbs, 6g fat, 14g protein


  • Break cauliflower into bite sized pieces 
  • Either steam on stove top or place in microwave for about 8 minutes. 
  • Combine yogurt, mustard and 1/2 the cheese
  • Add the salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
  • Place in a casserole and top with the remaining cheese 
  • Bake on 350 for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. 

*For a quicker version and to cut back on time, combine all the cheese if you don’t want to bake it in the casserole (just as good both ways). Mix and serve.

To make it a protein packed meal add 93% lean chopped meat.

Enjoy and keep on being fit. Be sure to tag your yummy creations on Instagram #pancakesandpushups or my Facebook page!
