If you’re a fan of macaroni and cheese, then you’ll love this cauliflower gratin version packed with veggies instead of noodles. This recipe is a perfect example of giving your child a good first impression of a new vegetable. If they go for this dish, next time try cauliflower by itself roasted or mixed into a pasta dish with some other favorite veggies. My 10-year-old daughter was honestly surprised it was even cauliflower she was eating since it tasted so yummy covered in all the cheesy goodness. Fingers crossed yours like it, too!

  1. Years before cauliflower was being used for everything under the sun, I started making my mac & cheese with a mix of steamed cauliflower and pasta. Still love it to this day!

  2. I have been making a similar recipe from an Everyday Food cookbook for years. The recipe calls for gruyere cheese and fresh grated nutmeg in the béchamel (no garlic). So yummy! I start making it when cauliflower is in season at the farmer’s market.
