You could feed this dish to your family and watch the surprise on their face once you tell them it is keto. They may even be so inclined as to join you on your keto diet. 

Keto Diet

If you are unsure what keto is, let me break it down for you a little bit. Keto is basically a low-carb, high-fat diet. 

The goal of this diet is to get your body to burn fat rather than carbs for energy. This can help a lot when it comes to weight loss.

But weight loss is not the only reason people do keto diets. This mac and cheese is the perfect example of recipes that will tie you in.

Once you start this diet, your body will have to do some adjusting, so you may not be feeling 100% for about a week or two.

All you have to do is push through that first period, and then it will be a lot easier. With recipes like this, it won’t even feel like a diet. 

One of the main reasons that people are not jumping at the opportunity to do keto is because a lot of the recipes taste like cardboard. 

Here, you can find many amazing keto recipes that will get you excited. I promise that keto cooked cauliflower macaroni and cheese is only the beginning. 

Maybe you are not on a keto diet but you are interested in recipes like these because they sound good. There is nothing wrong with that!

You will be surprised by how much flavor can be packed into a cauliflower mac and cheese recipe. And it can be made possible with your handy dandy air fryer.

I swear that using an air fryer makes every step a whole lot easier. If you do not have one, this is your sign to go out and get one. 

Maybe you have been contemplating whether or not it will be worth it. I am here to sincerely tell you that it is. 

Instead of waiting for boiling water, you can use your air fryer, which is a lot quicker and tastier.

You will however need a baking dish when it is time to put your cauliflower recipe into the oven.

There are so many delicious recipes that require you to use an air fryer, and I would hate for you to miss out.

With just five ingredients and an air fryer, you will be able to make this yummy mac and cheese recipe. It will only take a little over an hour to complete. 

In my opinion, mac n cheese is the perfect comfort food, whether it be your main or side dish. It will be even better when you add your cauliflower florets!

When I made this at home, my family absolutely loved this recipe. My family loves cheddar cheese, so that helped a lot.

If you have leftover mac and cheese, you can simply store it in the fridge and reheat it when you are ready to feast again. 

I like to add some more cheese before I reheat it so it can melt onto the existing mac and cheese. You should give it a try!
