Mac & cheese.... with cauliflower?

i just made an amazing mac & cheese with cauliflower puree. Even my son liked it and he is a very picky eater. You can't taste the cauliflower but it gives the macaroni such nice texture. And it is low fat too because you don't need to use any butter/flour to make the sauce. I didn't really measure but just to make it easy, this is roughly the recipe:

1 cup of macaroni (uncooked)
1 cup of milk
1 cup of cauliflower puree
1 cup of grated cheese
Salt/pepper to taste

Cook macaroni in salted water. When it's almost done, stir the milk and cauliflower puree in medium heat. When the macaroni is fully cooked, drain it and add it to the milk/cauliflower mixture. Turn off the heat and stir in the cheese. Let it melt a bit in the pot. Serve while it's hot.

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I'm going to try it with my kids, esp. since the older two don't eat cauliflower.
