Tonight’s dinner was Buffalo Chicken Keto Cauliflower Mac & Cheese. A couple of times I’ve substituted cauliflower for potatoes in dishes and they were ok . . not something that left me wanting to make the dish again real soon. I think it’s harder when you’re trying to imitate. Cauliflower in place of potatoes or rice . . it’s fine as cauliflower instead of potatoes or rice but it will never make me think I’m eating potatoes or rice. It’s all in how you look at it. Would I rather have potatoes or lose weight? I shouldn’t answer that question!
I didn’t think of this as fake mac & cheese . . I thought of it as chicken with cauliflower and let me tell you . . I think I could have eaten the entire pan by myself. It was so good and I wanted to drink that cheese sauce. Several times while we were eating, Vince said “This is so good!” and it was.
It was a bit more trouble than some of the things I make because I browned the chicken in a skillet, then made the cheese sauce in another pan, then roasted the cauliflower in a baking dish. It wasn’t so much trouble I wouldn’t make it again tomorrow but it was more work/mess than anything else I’ve made this week.
The dark pan went into the freezer. From each pan, we’ll get two meals so . . four meals from that work . . not bad at all. This is another dish I think anyone would be happy with . . diet or no diet.
