LOW FAT CAULIFLOWER CHEESE

It’s a household favourite, so we thought we’d have a go at mixing things up, loading up our Cauliflower Cheese with extra flavour, whilst dropping the fat, calorie and carb content right down so that you can enjoy this favourite more often! A serving of this Low Fat Cauliflower Cheese dish contains just 8.3g of fat, but over a whopping 40g of protein! The salty bacon, and tangy spring onions really compliment the cheese sauce and we promise you that you won’t be disappointed with this healthy twist on a household favourite.

So what have we switched up…

Eatlean Grated – For all the flavour, without all the high fat, high calorie content we use our Grated Protein Cheese for gooey melted cheese greatness! Low in fat, low in carbs, low in calories and high in protein, you can sprinkle this all over your dish.

Lean Bacon Medallions – Many supermarkets or butchers can offer a leaner cut of bacon, with the fat removed, so we opted for this. Zero compromise on flavour, yet a great lower fat alternative.

Skimmed Milk – Skimmed Milk typically contains around 0.1% fat so its a great alternative to the higher fat Whole Milk that can often be found in cheese sauces
