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.
