A keto meal that will warm you from this inside in the colder months

Mac and cheese poses a problem for the low-carb dieter, but by swapping out the macaroni for florets of cauliflower, you've solved that problem in an instant - and lets face it, who doesn't love cauliflower cheese?

Pro tip for keto cooks!

To take this to the next level, you can top the bake with low carb bread crumbs made by blitzing up a few Heylo slices or rolls. Just drizzle with a little oil after topping your bake and await that golden, crunchy topping. YUM!

Time Required
30 mins



  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees celcius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the cauliflower florets in a single layer.
  • Drizzle with oil and toss. Bake for 18 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat the cream to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat whisking often. Stir in cream cheese. And cook until the cream cheese melts.
  • Reduce heat to low. Stir in the ¾ cup of the cheddar cheese and the gouda cheese.
  • Add the cauliflower to the pot and toss to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 9 casserole dish. Top with the remaining ¾ cup of cheddar cheese.
  • Sprinkle with the garlic powder, ground mustard, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cook until the cheese melts, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. If desired, you can broil for a few minutes to brown the top.
