Applewood Smoked Cheddar Cauliflower Au Gratin
The smokey cheddar combined with the spice from aleppo chili wrap the cauliflower in a silky cheese sauce thanks to our secret ingredient ultrasperse3. This molecular ingredient allowed us to make a super creamy sauce without the added cost and calories of 35% whipping cream.
