Casseroles are usually filled with food high in carbs, like potatoes, rice or pasta. But in this casserole, I used cauliflower instead for a nutritious, low carb substitute.
Cauliflower has become one of my go-to low carb foods. It’s delicious as rice, the base for a salad or mashed like a potato. Cauliflower is high in fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants, yet low in calories and carbs, making it a wonderfully healthy addition to any meal!
In addition to cauliflower in this casserole, I also included two of my other favorite ingredients, buffalo sauce and Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese. The level of saucy, cheesiness in this dish is out of this world!
I wondered how my family would react to this keto casserole, but Kurt literally couldn’t put down his fork! It’s so simple and healthy, yet still so flavorful and delicious. It’s comfort food, without the guilt!
How do you make Cauliflower Casserole?
- Boil the cauliflower on the stove. By precooking the cauliflower florets on the stove for 10 minutes, it softens the cauliflower just the right amount to then cook perfectly in the casserole.
- Toss the casserole together. Once the cauliflower has been cooked on the stove, toss it with cooked, shredded chicken, buffalo sauce and shredded Cabot Cheddar Cheese. Add onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to season the casserole.
- Bake the cauliflower casserole. Transfer the ingredients into an 8 inch by 8 inch casserole dish. Top with more shredded cheddar cheese and place into the oven for 20 minutes.
Can you prepare a cauliflower casserole ahead of time?
Yes! This cauliflower casserole can easily be put together ahead of time, then baked later. Once it’s prepared, the baking dish can be covered and placed in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before baking.
It can also be covered and placed in the freezer for up to 6 months. When ready to eat the casserole, transfer it from the freezer to the refrigerator. Defrost the casserole for 24-28 hours in the refrigerator before baking it. Bake as directed in the recipe.
This casserole is so delicious, next time I make it, I plan to double the recipe and eat one now, then freeze one for later!
