Instant Pot Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

When a neighbor stops you mid dog-walk to ask if you own an Instant Pot the SAME DAY that three readers email you with a request for Instant Pot recipes, it is official: the Instant Pot is a thing. In my typically tardy fashion, I’m late to the game. Thus, it seems only appropriate that the first Instant Pot recipe I’m sharing involves another food trend for which I was behind schedule, All Things Cauliflower. Instant Pot Cauliflower Mac and Cheese has (belatedly) arrived!

Low carb Instant Pot Cauliflower Mac and Cheese. The BEST mac and cheese I’ve ever had. CREAMY, easy, and healthy, and you can’t taste the veggies! Riced cauliflower mixed with whole wheat pasta, in the best mac and cheese sauce. One of our favorite pressure cooker recipes!

It’s creamy. It’s ultra cheesy. It requires only four minutes of pressure cook time. By the time you finish reading this blog post, you could have an Instant Pot of healthy, cheesy goodness bubbling away.

This Instant Pot mac and cheese recipe also packs a hefty serving of secret cauliflower in every forkful, but I promise you (and any picky toddlers on the premises) won’t be able to detect it.

In fact, my very first taste testers of this Instant Pot Cauliflower Mac and Cheese were two of my best friends and their two-year-old daughter who never, under any circumstances, fails to share her candid opinion. She finished her entire plate and asked for seconds. When I asked her if she knew the secret ingredient, she responded, “Cheese?”

Judge. Jury. Verdict. Creamy, cheesy goodness is all you will taste!
