I only use half of the dijon and added some garlic powder and it had plenty of flavor. I used skim and only 1/2 T oil in the breadcrumb and only 1 TBs. to sautee the onion. Very yummy! I really enjoyed it and so did my 3 year old. I think you could use broccoli if you wanted too! Creamy and healthy!
Just made this over the weekend - it was great, but I did make a few changes: Left out the onion Used fresh oregano instead of parsely because that is what I had on hand Added nutmeg - about 1/2 tsp Used low-fat greek yogurt instead of sour cream Used 2% milk Used about 4 oz. cheddar and about 4 oz gruyere Used panko breadcrumbs instead of making my own It took about 20-30 min. to make from start to finish and was enjoyed by all the company we had over for dinner. I will definitely make this again and probably keep my subs. the same next time.
Vegetarian? Yes. Vegan? No. Vegan means nothing produced by animals, including dairy. To make this vegan you'd probably have to use a soy cheese, soy or almond milk and plain soy yogurt.
My boyfriend liked this more than I did. I thought it was a little on the bland side. Some garlic might do it good. I think I'd prefer to use all cheese instead of sour cream and I agree with larf8088 - I'd omit the mustard.
Seems this recipe is a vegan recipe...no meat/muscle- protein anywhere. If your vegan doesn't tolerate dairy (as in cheese,milk,sour cream) then you surely know the alternative replacements. Cheese is cheese.
Can anybody out there tell me how to turn this into a vegan recipe? Thanks. ;-]
can you use frozen cauliflower?
to each his own, too bad you went through all that labor with the food prep to find out it wasn't to your liking.
Was good except I used butter, whole raw milk, homemade creme fraiche, doubled the cheese, and used rice pasta. Nourished my kids brains with fats and protein!
Enjoyed this. Rather quick and easy. I used italian bread crumbs and dried parsley. I might omit the dijon mustard next time as I don't care for that flavor (although my husband loved it.) Tastes great even the next day.
I made this for dinner tonight, and really enjoyed it. I omitted the onion but otherwise followed the recipe (I also had some broccoli that I tossed in bc I didn't have quite enough cauliflower). It tastes much lighter than some baked mac and cheese recipes, probably because there aren't any eggs. The whole wheat pasta and cauliflower gave this dish a great flavor and nice texture, and was also quite filling.
Let me guess, in your world macaroni and cheese comes out of a box, right? People who only like their "blue box" macaroni and cheese should really just not try any baked variety, especially one with "sophisticated" flavors like mustard or onions (most have one or the other in them).
I really enjoyed this! I made several changes though. I used brown rice pasta and did not add any milk, parsley, or mustard. I also used yogurt instead of sour cream. will definately make this again!
Fabulous, you can "sneak" a wonderful vegetable in the mac and cheese and it is so good! I agree with cutting the fat a bit and using bread crumbs on top rather than pieces and yes some pepper is a fine addition. Happy cooking!
This is a fast and easy recipe and it tastes great! if you haven't made this yet you should try it out! also some changes you can make are: adding less sour cream so its not as creamy, and using bread crumbs instead of sliced bread. ENJOY! :)
I love this recipe! I have cooked it numerous times but lost my print-out so I searched on line tonight so that I could make it. I love it, so does my daughter. My changes: I use non-fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream and non-fat milk instead of 1% (both of these changes lower the fat content a bit). I add probably 1 tablespoon of pepper to kick it up a bit.
If you saw that the recipe had mustard, onions, and cauliflower--and you don't LIKE those in mac and cheese--why'd you still make it? Just a little perplexed.
Found this to be surprisingly bland. Added extra cheddar cheese and some salt- then sprinkled on some grated Parmesan at the end along with some hot sauce to give it a little kick. Good and wholesome comfort food even so.
I often make this with broccoli instead of cauliflower, or even with both- yum
I've made this twice, last time for New Year's Eve with friends. I used leeks instead of onions, added a little fresh garlic. Panko bread crumbs work just fine. Before topping with bread crumbs, I sliced plum tomato and placed the slices over the mac and cheese, then topped with bread crumbs. It looked great and everyone asked for the recipe. The cauliflower was a big surprise and a huge hit.
This is a favorite in our family. So yummy, it's hard to believe it's actually kind of good for you!
I made it without the bread crumbs and it was still fantastic.
I absolutely love this mac and cheese and just can't pull myself to try making it any other way. I'm also not usually one for anything added to my mac and cheese except mac and cheese, but the cauliflower is awesome in this dish.
I have made this a couple of times. Stove top prepared and sprinkled on the top also works pretty well.
Excellent! The cauliflower was barely detectible ~ it just added a subtle crunch. For someone who has kids, this might be a great way to sneak in a vegetable on them!
I don't own a food processor. Suggestions for bread crumbs prepard some other way, or store bought???
