Ingredients

  • 16 ounces cauliflower florets about 2 tightly packed cups of 'riced' cauliflower
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 1 T. oil I use olive
  • 1 T. oat flour nutritional yeast, almond meal, OR parmesan (if NOT dairy-free)
  • 1/4 t. sea salt
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. dried oregano
  • 1/2 t. dried basil
  • 1/8 t. garlic powder

Instructions

  • Make your cauliflower rice by either grating the pieces using a cheese grater or pulsing the florets in a food processor until finely chopped.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the cauliflower rice to the pan.
  • Turn the heat off (leave the pan on the burner), and cover the pan.
  • Let the pan sit covered for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove the lid from the 'rice', and dump the contents into a fine-mesh sieve to drain a bit.
  • Transfer the cooked cauliflower from the sieve to a clean dish towel.
  • Wrap the cauliflower in the towel, and squeeze out the excess water (there will be quite a bit!).
  • In a bowl, mix the egg, egg white, oil, and remaining ingredients.
  • Add in the squeezed cauliflower.
  • Mix everything until well combined.
  • Pour the contents of the bowl onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • Using a spoon, spread the mixture out into the shape of a small rectangle (it should be about 1/2 of an inch thick).
  • Place the pan into the oven, and bake the breadsticks for 35-40 minutes, until golden.
  • Cut the breadsticks as you desire (I make 4-5 column slices and then one row slice right through the middle).
  • Top the breadsticks with cheese or other vegetables, as desired.
  • Replace the breadsticks, and bake for 5-10 more minutes until toppings have cooked through.
  • Remove the breadsticks, cool, and enjoy!
