Gluten-Free Mac and Cheese Recipe

Just as Irresistible: Gluten-Free No-Mac and Cheese

What's the secret to making a pasta-less mac and cheese just as irresistible as the classic? Cauliflower. The cruciferous vegetable is the perfect vehicle for a cheesy, creamy sauce made from cheese, coconut milk, butter, and coconut flour. While the resulting dish is gluten-free and under 400 calories, note that it's high in saturated fat, so enjoy this comforting dish in moderation.
