Cauliflower Cheese Grits

From time to thyme we go on a low-carb kick.  Cauliflower has become the new potato in our house.  We’ve made Cauliflower Mash for years, but have recently begun turning it into other side dishes, like Cauliflower Rice, Cauliflower ‘Potato’ Salad, and Cauliflower Cheese Grits.
