This veggie casserole is definitely filling and satisfying – and leftovers make a convenient lunch, too! The cauliflower is very lightly mashed, so it still has some interesting texture – but it melds perfectly with the creamy sauce. You're going to love it!

How to Make Low Carb Cauliflower Casserole with Spinach
Cook the cauliflower however you prefer – my choice are those handy steam microwave-in-the-bag packs. They're very convenient and I find that the cauliflower doesn't get as water logged as it does after boiling it.
Meanwhile, cook some baby spinach in a large saucepan together with some cream cheese and sour cream.
Roughly mash the cooked cauliflower – you don't want super smooth, so leave some texture. Add it to the creamy spinach mixture, and season generously with salt and pepper. At this stage you could add any other herbs or spices that you like!
Transfer the vegetables to a baking dish and smooth it over. Sprinkle some shredded cheese over the top – whatever cheese you like. I chose Pepper Jack for a little zing!
Roast in a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and turned golden brown.
Let cool for 5 minutes before serving this low carb cauliflower casserole.

Any tips for doubling the recipe? I have a big family and I’d like to make a bigger casserole of this. Any tips on if I should change the cook time at all, etc?

I've not tried it (a family of three over here!), but it probably depends on whether you use a wider shallow dish, or a deeper one. If the former, you can probably cook it for the same length of time - just always check the center before serving!

This was absolutely AMAZING! My family and I have converted to a ketogenic lifestyle and have shared it with all of our family. My nieces came over and ate with us after hearing so much about it, and they couldn't believe that they loved it being ketogenic and meatless!!
Thank you for all that you do! Your contributions have been life-changing (and delicious ????) for us!
I mixed cheddar cheese and pepper jack for a kick to ours, and minced garlic!
