This Low Carb Spicy Cheesy Cauliflower Bake is the perfect comfort food that you won’t feel guilty about going for another serving! This is a quick and easy cauliflower bake that’s got such amazing flavor, people will think you’re a classically trained French cook! Cauliflower au gratin would be another name for this Cheesy dish!
This Spicy Cheesy Cauliflower Bake is a riff on the British classic “Cauliflower cheese”. It’s a pretty versatile dish, fit for lunch or dinner, or just as a companion piece to the main dish. The first Cauliflower Cheese first appeared in print in 1861 in the household guide Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the dish would often be served with roast meat and potatoes that were traditional to Sunday lunches at the time. The dish has stayed popular throughout the years, now days you can find it readily available as a vegetarian meal, and also baby food.
It certainly can be! The main attraction to this dish is how low carb it is while packing in all those rich comforting flavors we know and love. It’s also loaded with fiber, making it great for those on a diet.
This particular recipe takes about 45 minutes at 450 or until the cauliflower starts to brown.
Just make sure to store it in a tightly sealed container and place it in the fridge, where it’ll keep for 4-5 days. We don’t think that this particular recipe freezes super well, as reheating can make it soggy and watery but if you want to do it anyway, it’ll keep for 3 months or so.
It’s great as the main dish but you could also serve it as a side to many other meals. Serve it with our Spicy Sweet and Sour Tenderloin or even our Smoked Corned Beef. Of course, you can’t go wrong with the Dan-O’s Original Chicken Thighs Recipe. You can always find inspiration in our recipes section!
