Keto Pimento Cauliflower Cheese Grits
This recipe swaps out grains and uses riced cauliflower, a ridiculously good (and low carb) accompaniment to the cheddar and cream cheeses in this indulgent dish. This is a perfect side for a southern brunch with biscuits and sausage, or serve it just on its own!
Pimento Cauliflower Cheese Grits
1 head of cauliflower
3/4 Cup Almond Flour
3 Cups Chicken broth
2 1/2 Tablespoon Starch (Potato, Tapioca or Arrowroot)
3 Tablespoons Butter (dairy or nondairy)
2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
8 oz cream cheese
1 jar or 4 oz pimentos, drained and chopped
1/2 onion, minced
2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp oil
Blend a small head of cauliflower in a blender or food processor until it has a rice like consistency.
Over medium heat bring the "riced" cauliflower, almond flour, chicken broth, starch and butter to a boil in a medium saucepan until thick.
Meanwhile, saute the onions in the oil until translucent and add to the cauliflower grits.
Add the cheeses, spices, and pimentos.
Stir over medium heat until the cheese has melted and the grits are thick.
