Cheesy Cauliflower Bake and other great cauliflower recipes!

Cheesy Cauliflower bake 2

I know if you are watching your carbs like I am you are probably seeing lots and lots of cauliflower recipes.

Luckily for me, I love cauliflower. I can eat it in any way, shape or form, but covered in a delicious cheesy sauce, well you've got me there.

I grate my own cheese now. I don't buy the bags of pre-shredded cheese anymore and I find that not only do I get wayyyy more cheese from a big hunka cheese but I don't get those nasty additives that prevent it from clumping and it's cheaper in the long run. Think about it, there's a reason that the cheese in those bags don't clump and it's not good. So I buy big blocks of cheese from my local warehouse club and I take my cheese grater and I shred my own. It's quick, easy, tastes better and is so much better for you than those bags!

I also don't use any "cream of" soups anymore. Read my post here and see how I make my own SOS (Soup or Sauce) mix that I used in this recipe.
