So…like pretty much every other woman on the planet, my archenemy is bread. Carby carby bread. I could eat an entire loaf of homemade bread straight out of the oven and not even feel guilty about it…well until I can’t zip up my jeans.
I want breadsticks with pizza, toast with breakfast, and an extra slice of bread on my sandwich. I’m just kidding about that last one…kind of.
Since I love bread so much, but not particularly being five thousand pounds, these cauliflower “breadsticks” are perfect. …because they taste like bread…but aren’t. Nifty huh? No, I didn’t come up with this awesomeness alone. I was inspired by Pinterest. …and I did something about it–for once. I did modify the original recipe a bit because it didn’t include garlic…and I didn’t feel right about not adding garlic to these. Oh and it needed Parmesan. Fresh Parmesan. I hope you enjoy them…along side a cup of hot marinara or cold ranch dressing.
Garlicky Cauliflower “Breadsticks.”
1/2 head of cauliflower, grated
1 whole egg, plus one egg white, lightly beaten
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/4 cup 2% shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup fresh Parmiggiano Reggiano
Dried Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together (except oil) in a large bowl until evenly distributed.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use olive oil to grease the parchment paper.
Spread and flatten the cauliflower mixture on the parchment paper evenly – about 1 inch thick. Square off the edges so it looks like a rectangle or square.
Bake for 40 minutes until slightly dried out, browning, and firm to the touch.
Remove from oven and using a spatula carefully peel away from parchment paper. Flip over and return to oven for 10 more minutes. Serve with dipping sauce. Marinara or ranch dressing go great with these!
