Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese:

Cauliflower comes to the rescue, just like in other keto meals. Cauliflower makes the ideal vehicle for the gooey richness of that sauce, whether it’s used as a stand-in for the macaroni or as a substitute for the pizza foundation. Traditionally, a béchamel sauce made with a flour roux was used for mac and cheese. However, in this instance, it’s merely a combination of butter, cream, cheese, and spices. It’s quite easy to make; just cover the cauliflower with it, top with your preferred meats or vegetables, sprinkle with extra cheese, and bake.
