I Can’t Believe It’s Not Carbs: Creamy Scalloped Cauliflower
Gah, the sun. I miss it so so so much. How shiny it was. And hot. It was so delightfully hot! Remember when it would come out and stick around until it was time to put away the wine and tuck yourself into bed? *Sighs* And every year, after I’ve been seduced by the spoils of summer, it all comes back to me in one big, depressing whoosh. Fall (and winter) is an endless eternity of dark and sucky darkness.
I’m in complete and total mourning and I’m dealing with it like any sane human would: baking donuts, sleeping, and whining about it ad nauseam.
That’s the “whoosh”.
OTHER than trying to resist the urge to carb-load and keep myself awake past 8pm, I’ve found actually getting into my bed is a real struggle. What is it about my awkwardly shaped Ikea couch that is so GD appealing? Nothing, yet I’ve slept there until midnight for the last week.
OK, I’ll stop complaining but only because It’s 9:30pm on a Wednesday and it’s about time for me to put my grandma pj’s on and go sleep on the couch.
Low Carb Scalloped Cauliflower
aka Cheese Casserole
aka The Ultimate Comfort Food
…because you can’t very well sleep your life away without a belly full of cheesy, low carb goodness.
This recipe is The Low Carb BOMB dot com but the photos were taken at sunset (so basically 4:30pm) and not my best work. It is what it is. Let’s press on, shall we?
BAKE that until it’s bubbly and tempting you within an inch of just saying “screw it” and shoveling a hot spoonful right onto those fragile taste buds.
Don’t do that though. It needs more cheese first.
Have you ever wondered what your “broil” setting was for on your oven? Welp, it’s to encase casseroles in a melty, cheesy blanket of love as demonstrated below.
The stringy cheese and tangy cheese compliments the smoky, meaty flavor of the sautéed portobello mushrooms which you probably didn’t even see because CHEESE!!!!
Now I can tell you all day long how amazing this recipe is but why should you believe me? Don’t. Believe my girl gang who devoured it and were down for making it ASAP.
