Cauliflower cheese is flavoured with Stilton cheese and walnuts for a rich and delicious dish.
This is a great low carb comfort food dish and perks up the regular cauliflower cheese with the addition of a strong cheese and walnuts. I adore this dish and have to be restrained from eating the whole dish myself.
I use Stilton as I like a strong blue cheese paired with walnuts, but if this is not for you, use Cheddar instead. The walnuts give the dish an extra crunch and taste.
This is a simple low carb cauliflower cheese recipe with the addition of walnuts and stilton cheese.
This cauliflower cheese dish could be a main or a side dish. I've served it with dinner and also scoffed a huge plate of just this to myself. I guess it depends what you are serving as a main or want it as a sole dish.
How to make Stilton Cauliflower Cheese
This is a quick and easy low carb cauliflower side dish. With a simple keto cheese sauce and cooked cauliflower this dish is elevated by the addition of a strong blue cheese.
- Cook the cauliflower. We boil it but it could be steamed.
- Make the low carb cheese sauce with butter, cream and cream cheese.
- Add half of the Stilton cheese and stir until melted.
- Place the cauliflower in a baking dish and pour the cheese sauce over the cauliflower.
- Add the walnuts and remaining Stilton cheese.
- Broil under the grill or bake.
If you don't like strong Stilton use another cheese for a different flavour to your low carb cauliflower cheese. A truffle Gouda perhaps? Or a mature Cheddar cheese. Both would pair well with the walnuts.
Drain the cauliflower well as any excess water will make the cheese sauce thinner.
