Paleo Cauliflower Casserole


paleo cauliflower cassorole with bechamel sauce

Cauliflower was not one of my favorite vegetable before discovering some really yummy recipes like the one I am sharing with you today. I love anything made with béchamel sauce. After going grain free I didn’t prepare any dishes that I use to make before . I just thought to myself why not try it with coconut flour. It worked really well and was happy to enjoy the texture of béchamel  with even a more flavorful taste. I actually really ended up loving it better than the one made with white flour.

Today’s recipes is very easy and I am certainly sure that you will love the taste.

You can also apply the same steps below for a broccoli Casserole or even better, a combination of both cauliflower and broccoli.
