Help! How Can I Make a Lighter Cheese Sauce?

low fat mac n cheeseQuestion: I tried and love many of your mac’n’cheese hacks, but now I’m trying to get rid of my extra pounds after the holidays and I was looking for healthy ways to make my cheese sauce lighter. Any suggestions? Sent by Lara

Editor: To make a low-fat version of your regular mac and cheese, you can skip the usual butter-flour roux and use pureed cooked cauliflower as a thickener instead. Cauliflower is a fat-less way to add creaminess without altering the flavor. It’s also a great way to sneak in a healthy dose of fiber and vitamins. Try it also on top of veggies or other sides like dips, it makes wonders!
