Ingredients

For the Mac & Cheese

1 small head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  6. To a medium mixing bowl, add cauliflower, 2 tablespoons butter, nutritional yeast, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  7. Arrange cauliflower florets in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast until crispy and fork-tender, 15-20 minutes. 
  8. To a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the cheddar cheese, cream cheese, milk, remaining tablespoon of butter, and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until cheese melts and mixture thickens, 3-5 minutes.
  9. Toss cauliflower with cheese sauce and divide between Crepini cups. Top with additional cheese and green onions. Serve immediately.
