Let’s Get Started

My secret to the amazing taste to this dish? Roasting the cauliflower in the oven with plenty of garlic!

Preheat oven to 400°. Chop cauliflower in to bite size pieces. Place in large bowl. Drizzle oil over cauliflower and heap teaspoons or tablespoons of garlic to your liking in bowl. Gently stir until evenly coated.

Spread on baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes, turning about half way point.

Prepare the delicious cheesy sauce – In a large pan, melt butter on medium heat. Whisk in the almond flour (regular flour is perfectly fine, however to keep this low carb use almond flour).

Gradually whisk in the heavy whipping cream (or half and half, whole milk). Whisk constantly until sauce becomes bubbly and thickens. Add cream cheese and dijon.

Add 1 cup of cheese. If sauce is too thick, thin it out with cream.

Gently toss the cauliflower in to the cheese mixture until well combined. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
