Darlin’ Deals Dinner ~ Cheesy Cauliflower!

Cauliflower Dinner

I’ve recently fallen in love with substituting cauliflower in recipes instead of using potatoes or meats. I was invited to a StoneFire VIP Media Dinner last year and it was there that I discovered that cauliflower is much more than a cold veggie served with a side of ranch. So I definitely owe StoneFire credit for showing me how delicious cauliflower is as a main dish!

Tonight I tried out a cheesy cauliflower meal that is a great veggie substitute for the beloved carb-filled favorite Mac & Cheese.

Here’s what you will need:

  • Large Cauliflower
  • Butter
  • Cream Cheese
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Seasoning of your choice (I went with Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb because its sodium free)


  1. Fill a sauce pan with about 3-4 inches of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Chop the cauliflower head into bite size pieces.
  3. Once water is boiling place all the cauliflower pieces in and cook about 10 minutes, or until they are tender when poked with a fork.
  4. Drain the cauliflower and while its still in the colander place 2 tbsp. of butter and 1/2 cup of cream cheese in a pan.
  5. Turn the heat to medium to melt the butter/cream cheese mixture.
  6. Sprinkle in shredded cheese (as much as you like, but I used about 1/2 cup)
  7. Season lightly with seasoning of your choice
  8. Toss the cauliflower back in the pan and mix until covered in the cheesy goodness.
  9. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top and serve

 Enjoy! :)
