Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
A recipe for cauliflower mac and cheese, inspired by Kelly McWilliams's AGNES AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
- 1 large head cauliflower, cut into small florets
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 1 1/4 cups shredded cheese, such as Cheddar or Monterey Jack
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and boil for 5 minutes. Drain cauliflower and remove to a bowl.
Bring the milk to a simmer in a small saucepan. Whisk in the cream cheese, continuously whisking until smooth.
Stir in Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and whisk just until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add drained cauliflower to saucepan with cheese sauce, and stir. Serve immediately.
