Creamy Waste Less Mac and Cauliflower Cheese

Don't let that leftover veg go to waste! Reduce food waste from home and create the perfect dinner for the whole family to enjoy by making use of this week's leftover cauliflower with our creamy mac and cauliflower cheese recipe!


Step 1
  • Cook your macaroni in a pan on the hob, following the pack instructions. For the final 5 mins of cooking, add your cauliflower to the pan.
Step 2
  • Melt your butter in a separate pan, then stir in the flour and cook for 2 mins, stirring continuously. Gradually add the Arla Cravendale milk, stirring all the time. Once you get a lovely smooth sauce, add three-quarters of the cheddar cheese, the English mustard and your seasoning.
Step 3
  • Drain the macaroni and cauliflower well in a sieve, then stir into the cheese sauce. Once all your macaroni and cauliflower is covered in sauce, pour your mixture into an ovenproof dish.
Step 4
  • Mix your remaining cheddar, parmesan, breadcrumbs and herbs in a bowl, then spread evenly over the macaroni and cauliflower mix. Cook in the oven for about 30 mins, until the top is golden brown and bubbling. Then remove from the oven, serve with a crispy side salad and enjoy!
