SERVES 4 – You can double the recipe, if needed. 1 head of fresh cauliflower, cut into 1 inch pieces; 1 cup water; 1 teaspoon garlic pepper (you can also use ground black pepper, if preferred) 1 tablespoon hot sauce (I used Franks Red Hot sauce) 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature. Tips for Perfect Cheese Sauce (not grainy or gritty) Have you ever made a mac and cheese that wasn’t creamy or smooth?

Instead if was grainy or gritty? The worst! Here’s a few steps you should take for perfectly creamy cheese sauce. Use real cheese.

First step to success is to start with real cheese. Directions A holiday-worthy vegetarian side dish made with hearty roasted cauliflower, crispy toasted pine nuts, and a deliciously creamy, rich red pepper pesto sauce. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Slice the tip of the cauliflower stem off to remove any dead / less than. Steam cauliflower, cook to fork tender, drain, rough chop, set aside. In a sauce pot over low heat, add heavy whipping cream.

Whisk in garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Add cream cheese and stir until smooth, and then add cheddar cheese. stir until cheese is melted completely. Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Pour in pasta and cook until al dente. While pasta is cooking, cut cauliflower up into large florets and place into shallow dish.

Pour chicken stock over cauliflower, cover with plastic wrap, cut slit in the top and microwave 7-9 minutes or until cauliflower is fork tender.

If you are having a mac and cheese emergency, you can cut the recipe in half, buy riced cauliflower and pre-shredded cheese, steam the cauliflower while making the roux, and simply pour the sauce over the steamed cauliflower.

  • I swear to god buzzfeed has been stealing all of my families vegan delicious recipes. We do scrambled tofu all the time and we use this sauce for Mac and cheese (which I had last night) slightly varied. I mean I know they probably didn’t and they keep getting these from the internet but it’s annoying and really weird.

  • Just did this for a date with a woman. Pretty sure this dish helped a lot for the way the date ended. And it ended pretty good. Thanks man!:D

  • This recipe is really out of this world. The Taste with the chuttney go with it and the bacon/crumps around it, is bonkers. Even the kids couldn’t stop eating. Thank you Jamie for this amazing inspiration of great food!

  • Thats not Makkaronis, they are 30 cm long.Americans use Elbonenoodles with
    chemical Cheeseextract inside.Its smells good but tastes disgusting.
    Had you ever heard,that Noodels with Chesse are good for 2 years?
    Only fresh Cheese is the real deal.

  • 1) butter on a pan
    2) 3 onions sliced, into the pan
    3) 3 spoons of flavour into the pan, stir
    4) 1 L of milk, slowly in, stir
    5) shred the cheese and into the pan, good stri
    6) cook/boil pasta (5 mins)
    7) drain pasta, into the pan
    8) some sause stir and finally
    9) into the over for 30 mins 200C/400F
    done enjoy

  • That reminds me. My sister and I made some baked mac’ and cheese yesterday, and it was her first time using cayenne and mustard powder in a cheese sauce. She was skeptical about the mustard, thinking it similar in taste to the condiment, but she was blown away with the resulting deliciousness.

  • I have an amazing dish with plum and oyster sauce……but couldnt get any so thought mango chutney might work……..boomshakalaka

  • I’m in a lockdown and I’m preparing for my semester finals at University, Masters in Literature. It’s tough studying remotely. But after a few hours of work I’ll watch few episodes of your show and feel refreshed again. Its your spirit, your passion in your work that inpires me all the time! God bless you!

  • is there a recipe anywhere? you didn’t say how much pasta you use only 1l of milk. Are the proportions 1:1 milk and pasta so 1kg of pasta?

  • Love your tips that save time and effort. Here it’s not having to make a separate cheese sauce with flour etc. The Staub cookware looks good too.

  • But you really should boil Cauliflower….that shit always has a lot of worms in it.
    Boiling kills them you can strain and use it then.

  • umm… ya know cauliflower with cheese sauce is a normal thing right? Birdseye in the frozen food aisle has it already jangled up for ya. And you dont have to call it mac where there aint no mac, Mac.

  • Wish me luck. I’m going to try this dish tonight. I’m not a great cook so keep your fingers crossed that I can make it almost as good as you can. Do you have any high protien dishes?

  • This was awesome! I was doing the potatoes n carrots n nooch Vegan mock cheese but this is quick n simple n healthier n tastierCheers mate

  • This looks really good with the chives. I’m thinking a few cloves of garlic minced would be good before baking the cauliflower. I’m going to try it.

  • Donal, since you moved to US your recipes are so unhealthy and packed with bad fats and calories that I am wondering if someone pays you for promoting obesity. This dish is around 3500 kcal you should mention it and provides ZERO valuable nutrients. Maybe you should start a new series: “Food that gives you cancer, diabetes, alzheimer” I am disappointed…

  • So, I watched this video when it first came out, and the other day I figured I’d give it a go. I needed to know what ingredients to buy, so I watched the video again. Then I got to the end of it and realised I had just been giggling at the jokes and completely forgot to pay attention to the exact ingredients. Then I noticed the recipe was also in the description. Then I realised I actually also have the book.
    Then I just watched the video once more for good measure.

    Long story short: it all worked out and it was freaking delicious:D

  • Man! I thought you were some kind of vegetarian ( cauliflower! mac & cheese! )

    There’s absolutely nothing wrong w / vegetarianism. But cauliflower for mac & cheese!

    I was going to rake you over those flowers, but decided to watch the entire video.

    The browning of the flowers shut me up, immediately! They looked delicious. What a great recipe for mac & cheese. I use to hate brussel sprouts, cauliflower especially but I learned how to cook b.s. & now, thanks to you, I can cook cauliflower.

    Very, very imaginative & creative cooking.

    Thank you!

  • The sauce looks nice but none of the ideas look appetising to me. I’d imagine it would taste nice with chicken or pork and pasta but it would need some crunch too.

  • Shakespeare speaking: “The cauliflower and tube like noodles and cheese looks absolutely scrumptious mine own lief valorous sir. How doest t gust like to a gentle sir like myself?” ��

  • Donal that looks sinfully decadent. You’ve managed to combine 2 fantastic dishes: Cauliflower Gratin and Mac and Cheese. Can be a main course or a side for a juicy roasted chicken. Just because I like it I may add a small splash of freshly grated nutmeg. Could use breadcrumbs but fine without also.

  • What a coincidence! I was just looking for a recipe for tomorrow’s dinner. I will definitely try this tomorrow. Keep up the great job Donal

  • aah…the bechamel-less mac n cheese recipe i’ve been looking for! thank you, Donal! I never really enjoyed making traditional mac n cheese, i don’t like making bechamel, and I also don’t like how heavy it tastes. This is perfect for me!

  • This is great! Easy to prepare cauliflower mac and cheese. Definitely trying this… I love your vegan recipes…Keep it coming ��❤️��

  • I dont see any Mac in the Cauliflower Mac and cheese:O so wouldn’t this just be Cauliflower Cheese!:D New viewer loving ya videos so far

  • Would it be a bad idea to leave the skin? I think there are lots of good nutrients in plant skin and it would make the sauce a little bit chunky, which im ok with.

  • Yum looks delicious i am making this soon can make this to low carb and vegan as am low carb and vegan started last tuesday onwards tell max i love him sooooooo much and i say hi to him my focus is on him love dogs love your videos making me hungry Thanks Ramya

  • I’m glad he didn’t skimp on the onions. Absolutely crucial for a mac and cheese. I do like having breadcrumbs on top though, that nice crunchy texture is perfect.

  • “The toss is a handy little piece of physics that harnesses the power of gravity to get all the olive oil in the crooks and the crannies of the cauliflower yee-haw”

  • Omg, I made this same dish yesterday for my kids and I for lunch. How funny. They gobbled it up (because it wasn’t a turkey leftover).

  • I get its keto and macaroni is a no go but why call it Mac and cheese when there’s no macaroni in it? Its like making beef casserole without the beef.
    It is what it is, Cauliflower cheese.

  • Looks amazing. So making it tomorrow and throwing scallions on top too. Maybe even simmer cauliflower in half veggie both and half of my favorite beer.

  • There’s many other ways to use this sauce. You can use it as a marinade, or use it to make curry. Eat it with sushi. Dip your cookies in it, I don’t give a shit. Use it to pay off your student loans. No more debt! Pour it over your ex, okay maybe not, they have a restraining order against you now. Send it to North Korea. They can’t nuke us if they’re too busy enjoying this lovely red pepper sauce! Instant world peace! Launch it into space! Fuck it! Let the aliens deal with this shit! Sacrifice it to Satan, oh wait no, he’s not pleased. He dragged you down to hell. Send help.

  • I buy the green gaint bag and boil….I never get any complaints from my children they always wanted more veggies…our favorite is the creamed spinach or broccoli and cheese..birdseye pasta veggie blend also tastey but the bag and boil so easy

  • Mac and cheese is one pot anyway…cook the pasta, into the casserole, cook the sauce, into the casserole and into the oven. The same! Lol! Anyway, I like the idea of the cauliflower. I’m diabetic, so maybe I’ll try it with just the cauliflower. Bet it will do the trick. Thanks!

  • Tried it. For me nothing special. Too sweet from onions&chutney, definitely needs more saltiness. Plus at the very end, macaroni drank too much of the sauce. It didn’t look like Jamies’ version, although I followed the instructions from the video literally step by step. Disapointed:(

  • You are a bloody legend, all your recipes are sooooo practical for quick meals on the go but still awesome quality. Love your work mate!

  • Oh My Gosh!! I made the recipe just how you showed except I used Dairy Free cheeses and I cannot BEGIN to tell you how Delicious this was! LOOOVE THE KETO RECIPES!! Keep Em’ coming!!!
