Keto Cauliflower Cheese

Sunday roasts aren’t what they used to be, are they? We now skip the roast potatoes, the Yorkshire puds and we pass on the gravy. This is why I worked on a keto cauliflower cheese as a delicious side dish to your roast meat. This recipe is not only cleaner, tastier and lighter, but it’s 100% KETO and I bet it will knock the kids’ socks off. The flavour is rich and satisfying and I love scattering over smoked sea salt flakes before serving for additional flavour and texture. The macros were calculated that this recipe will feed 6 people, if served as equal-sized servings.

I love baking vegetables in double cream. The flavour of baked cream is intoxicating and it thickens to mimic the “white sauce” we sorely miss. If you love the idea as much as I do, be sure to also check out the Cream-baked Broccoli, Courgettes baked in Cream or the most popular recipe on the blog: Keto Celeriac Dauphinose – all LUSH!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Trim the cauliflower florets into smaller, equal size pieces.

  3. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the cauliflower and leave to boil for 15 minutes. They should be softened but still firm. A good test is to pierce a floret with a fork - it should slide off.
  4. Drain the cooked cauliflower in a colander and allow to steam off completely.

  5. Place the cauliflower in a suitable oven-bake dish and season with a little salt and white pepper.
  6. In the meantime, heat the double cream and a pinch of nutmeg in a pan on the stove top. Add a little salt and white pepper and allow to simply warm through: it need not boil or simmer.
  7. Pour the warm cream over the cauliflower and place the dish onto a tray (for easier removal, and in case any cream bubbles over.) Place in the oven for 20 minutes.

  8. After 20 minutes, remove the tray from the oven and increase the oven to 200°C / 390°F. It will look like this >

  9. Scatter over the grated cheese and return the tray to the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese bubbles and gratins. Season with smoked sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.

Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
