Creamy Cheese Cauliflower with Bacon

I will tell you a secret about this food. I made it because I really wanted a bacon creamy macaroni. It is true that now I have temporarily lost my taste and smell because of the covid, but the taste experiences still live on in me … 

I remember when my husband and I walked on Ráday Street in Budapest around 2015, and entered a nice little restaurant. We swallowed hard because of the pervasive divine scents. The aroma of garlic was mixed with the aroma of toasted bacon and cheeses. We couldn’t wait to serve the bacon creamy macaroni. Of course, we both ordered the same thing and didn’t regret it, and then we went back for weeks to eat the same food, until once I made it at home, only with a much larger portion. I would have eaten a creamy macaroni with bacon now like this!


Now, however, since we no longer eat pasta, I had to figure out something else that has as neutral a taste as pasta but is free of carbs. Cauliflower is always a good solution for this because there are only 3 g of carbs per 100 g. And the rest is just a matter of seasoning. Believe me, you won’t miss the pasta out of it and you’ll be perfectly satiated with this Creamy Cheese Cauliflower with Bacon.
