Cheesy Pull Apart Cauliflower

I first came up with the idea of Cheesy Pull Apart Cauliflower after seeing my sister in law make cheesy pull apart bread. It look so good when I saw it on her Instagram page, but I knew it was too much calories and unhealthy. What made it unhealthy is the empty carbs from the white bread. It didn’t take long for me to figure out a healthy swap for bread would be cauliflower. Everyone is making cauliflower pizza, bread, rice etc… After doing some research and recipe testing at home I finally perfected my Cheesy Pull Apart Cauliflower. The main trick and cutting a lot of time is simmering the whole head of cauliflower for 5-10 minutes. This process fully cooks the cauliflower and makes it more pliable when inserting cheese. Make sure you drain the cauliflower fully in a colander before inserting cheese. This dish can be a main course or a shared appetizer.
