It can be prepared in a variety of pan sizes, from the typical pie plate to a hefty 11″x7″ biscuit pan. Make ahead tip: roast your cauliflower a couple of days in advance and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to whip up this pie.
Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole
Cauliflower casserole is a healthy, creamy comfort food side dish that you will love. It can be served as a vegetarian meal, and is also low carb and keto friendly! This delicious recipe is sure to be a hit with your family and friends.
In this cauliflower casserole, florets of cauliflower are roasted and then coated with a creamy cheese sauce. The result is a tasty side dish that is perfect for a busy weeknight!
The cheesy cauliflower sauce is made by whisking together flour and butter, then adding milk and a bit of grated cheddar. You can also use softened cream cheese instead, but you may need to add some additional milk or cream to thin out the sauce.
The cauliflower florets are then topped with the cheese sauce and baked. You can even broil the casserole for a few minutes to get it extra bubbly!
Creamy Cauliflower Soup
Roasted cauliflower is the secret to this rich and creamy soup. It develops a flavor that’s nutty, caramelized and just a touch sweet.
You can use a mix of spices here, but we recommend adding a generous sprinkling of Italian seasoning and smoked paprika. The combination gives the soup a robust, satisfying flavor that will keep you coming back for more!
Once the cauliflower is tender, add stock and thyme sprigs. Then, puree the soup with an immersion blender, or transfer it to a regular blender in batches and blend until smooth.
You can serve this soup with lots of toppings, like croutons and bacon bits, for an extra hearty meal. It’s also great for a light lunch or as a side dish to Garlic Bread, Grilled Chicken BLT Salad, or any kind of sandwich!
