Also, you say you blend 50% cauliflower in your cheese sauce... How does that affect the texture? I'd love to try that. Do you have a recipe you could share?
The texture changes slightly, but not enough to bother me or my daughter. Just steam a head of cauliflower, puree it in a food processor, and mix it into your cheese sauce. this is a great link
though I always make my mac and cheese in different ways every time. Lately I've been making the "miracle mac and cheese
" with skim or 1% milk, then instead of adding more milk in the end, add the cauliflower puree instead. It has no butter or flour, but it comes out super creamy. I make sure to use extra sharp cheese and to season the milk with salt/pepper/garlic powder (or adobo). I skipped that the first time and it came out bland.
