Make a Lighter Cheese Sauce

To create Food Network Magazine's trimmed-down mac and cheese (pictured above), we skipped the usual butter-flour roux and used pureed cooked cauliflower as a thickener. The cauliflower doesn't alter the flavor — it just adds creaminess without the fat. It's a great way to sneak in fiber and vitamins too. Try the cheese sauce from this recipe on top of veggies or other sides.
