4-Ingredient Cauliflower Cheese Recipe

4-Ingredient Cauliflower Cheese Recipe
Cauliflower hasn’t always been a popular vegetable, but lately it is all the rage, and everybody seems to love it. It’s good cooked or raw, and it’s widely used for gluten-free pizza crusts. Cauliflower is great in side dishes, vegetable medleys, and casseroles, and the following 4-Ingredient Cauliflower Cheese is a quick and delicious way to prepare it. Because the cauliflower is a bit watery when cooked, no other liquid is needed to transform the soup and cheese into a delicious creamy sauce.

This yummy, cheesy side dish goes well with grilled meats, poultry, or fish, as well as pot roast or roast chicken. It’s good enough to serve as a side dish at holiday dinners.
Although fresh cauliflower is best for this dish, it’s okay to use frozen; just omit the microwave cooking since frozen is already partially cooked. You can also make this with half broccoli and half cauliflower or a frozen vegetable medley.
