Instructions

Roasted Cauliflower

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss the cauliflower florets with the olive oil and spread out onto a sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast for 15 minutes, tossing half way through, or until fork-tender.

Toasted Almond Flour Crumbs

  1. While the cauliflower is roasting, make the almond flour crumbs. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a small skillet, then add the almond flour. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan to cool.

Chipotle Cheddar Sauce

  1. Melt the remaining butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in cream cheese and heavy cream until melted and hot. Remove from the heat and whisk in the chipotle chili powder and cheddar cheese until well combined.
  2. Once the cauliflower is done roasting, add it to the saucepan with the cheese sauce and toss to combine.
  3. Serve topped with the almond flour crumbs and a garnish of sliced green onions or parsley, if desired.
