Cauliflower Mac 'n' Cheese

 

Cauliflower Mac N' Cheese

  

 8 cups cauliflower florets (1 head of cauliflower)

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

½ tsp. kosher salt

½ tsp. ground black pepper

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 ½ cups skim milk

½ cup heavy cream

3/8 tsp. table salt

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (4 oz.)

 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the cauliflower florets in the olive oil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the kosher salt and ¼ tsp. of the pepper. Roast until fork-tender and lightly browned in spots, 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven but leave the oven on and reduce the temperature to 350 degrees.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Whisk in the heavy cream and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and stir in all but 2 Tbsp. of the cheese, the table salt, and the remaining ¼ tsp. pepper. Stir until the cheese melts, then cook, stirring often, until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.

Place the roasted cauliflower florets in an 8x8 inch glass baking dish or four 10 oz. ramekins. Pour the cheese sauce over cauliflower. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 2 Tbsp. cheese.

Bake until the cheese is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.

Serves: 4 ppl

    Solar panels lighting up New Orleans East

    Solar energy is blanketing one neighborhood even after state tax credits disappeared. In New Orleans East at least 2,150 homes have solar energy and several homeowners are landing the panels at little or no initial cost. At Mary Queen of Vietnam, the church installed a large solar system including a hot water heater panel. “One single panel like that we don't have to use any other energy from the roof to make the water heater work and so it's a big saving to us,” Anthon...
