Scalloped Mascarpone Cauliflower is meal-time perfection with its cheesy flavor and creamy texture that elevates this nutritious vegetable to new heights!

Scalloped Mascarpone Cauliflower

It’s funny to me how my recipes develop at times. For instance, take this Scalloped Mascarpone Cauliflower, I had mascarpone leftover from this Low-Carb Peach Mascarpone Flatbread I needed to use. I’ve been leaning to a more plant-based diet lately and wanted to use it with a vegetable.

I was pleasantly pleased how good Scalloped Mascarpone Cauliflower is. I’m a total Mac n Cheese lover and this gave me that same luscious, creamy, cheesy mouth feel while cutting calories tremendously with the cauliflower instead of pasta. As well, mascarpone is gluten-free and works beautifully partnered with cauliflower.

For my taste, I used a good bit of salt, pepper, and garlic. Adjust those seasonings to your liking.

As well, I used almond milk, but whole milk or heavy cream would make this side dish even more decadent.
