Remember when I told you that I love cauliflower? It's still true. If you need a reminder you can check out this cauliflower soup recipe that I did earlier this year. And if you do read it, you'll notice I said I #CantStand onions, but I've recently changed my ways. Additionally, chicken and cauliflower are my ideal pallet apparently. Finally, a bit of warning. Do not make this on a hot summer night. I was inspired, but maybe you can hold off for a night that isn't in the high 80s.
I was perusing Pinterest late at night when I couldn't sleep as one does. I was looking at different types of cauliflower recipes, and then I saw a mac and cheese made with cauliflower, and I knew I wanted to make something similar.
I was originally going to just try making that, but then I thought that something layered would be even better. So off to brainstorming I began.
Finally I just have to endorse the side of salsa with this dish. It's that final bit of flavor that get's this right to perfection. Trust me. I know it sounds weird, but it's honestly divine.
I am so happy with how this dish turned out. It's all from a bit of Pinterest, and I will definitely be making it again. Now I want to know, what is your go to late night Pinterest searching? Is it food, fashion, DIY or something else? Let us know in the comments!
