Cauliflower Breadsticks

Cauliflower Breadsticks
I've seen this recipe and similar recipes like this one, floating around the Internet for quite a while now! It has been on just about every food page I've visited. I took it as a sign that I need to try it...and so I did!

This was very easy to make. It tastes more like a veggie pizza than breadsticks, but it was still very good considering it doesn't contain any bread!  And it's healthy too. It's very low on calories and carbs! I tweaked the original recipe by increasing the garlic and double baking the breadsticks after I sliced them to get them more crisp. A tasty little snack, appetizer or side dish! I think I'll try it with broccoli and cheddar next time.

I found the recipe on a Facebook page called Healthy Habit Lady. I'm posting the recipe with my changes.

1 large head of cauliflower, chopped
3 large cloves garlic, chopped
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 oz. part skim shredded mozzarella
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Microwave cauliflower for about 5 minutes on high.
Place the cooked cauliflower and garlic into a food processor and pulse until it has the texture of mashed potatoes. Place into a medium size bowl and add in the eggs, mozzarella, onion powder, salt & pepper. Mix until well combined. Spread evenly onto the cookie sheet to 1/2 inch thickness.
Bake for 25 minutes or until very brown.
Remove from oven and sprinkle lightly with more shredded mozzarella.
Slice into thin strips and bake again for another 5-10 minutes to make them a little more crisp. Serve warm.

  1. My grandson does not like bread of any kind but he love cauliflower so..........I'm thinking this would be perfect for him!

    1. Oh, then he would love these! Thanks for checking it out! =D

  2. Do you think there's a way to make this recipe without the cheese?, or at least reduce it quite a bit?

    1. hi Leanne! This definitely needs the cheese for flavor and to help bind everything together. Maybe you can use a reduced fat cheese. It doesn't have to be mozzarella. It could be cheddar or any other good melting cheese. I hope this helps. Thanks for checking it out. I hope you'll try it! =D
