Cauliflower Bread Sticks
I have seen this and other things like rice, and pizza crust, on Pinterest and wanted to try it out. I mean, if this works out that opens up a ton of foods that are ordinarily not so great, and I can make them out of a veggie? No way. Well guess what? WAY! It’s so good! I didn’t make the marinara sauce because I’m not really a fan, but these would definitely be good with some type of sauce, and I might add more cheese…
Ingredients: 1 cup raw grated cauliflower (I did about half a head) 1/4 cup egg substitute (or 1 egg) 1 cup shredded or 4 oz 2% light mozzarella, divided Garlic salt and Italian seasonings, to taste
Marinara Sauce 1/2 cup Italian diced tomatoes - less than 5 g of carbs per serving Directions: Puree Italian diced tomatoes in a small chopper. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350. Chop up the cauliflower and grate it in the food processor, or use a grate and do it by hand until it looks like rice. Mix cauliflower, 1/4 cup egg substitute, and 3 oz or 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella together in a bowl until combined. Line a 9 x13 loaf pan with parchment and lightly spray with Pam. Pour mixture into pan about 1 -1/2 inch deep. (It is okay if the mixture does not cover the entire pan). Bake at 350 for 30 min or until set. Lift the edges of the parchment and place bread with parchment on to cookie sheet. Carefully use a spatula to lift the edges of the dough off the parchment and flip the dough. Bake for an additional 15 minutes at 450 degrees. Take out of oven and with a pizza cutter, slice strips through set dough. Separate slightly. Sprinkle with garlic salt, Italian seasonings and 1 oz or 1/4 cup 2% reduced fat mozzarella or three cheese blend. Continue baking at 450 degrees for about 10 more minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with marinara sauce.
