A few months ago, I started having to go gluten free for medical reasons. At first it wasn’t too big of a deal, but slowly it got very boring!!! I found I needed to always be looking for new recipes to keep me on track, and not miserable at the same time haha. I had tried these breadsticks before, but they did NOT go over well. The first recipe did not taste good, they feel apart, and it was not something I enjoyed eating. So I tried again. And again. And again.
Finally I found one that is good!!! Give it a try!!
1 Head Cauliflower
2 Eggs (or 1/4 Cup Egg Whites)
1/2 Cup Mexican Cheese
1/ Cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 Tsp Italian Herb Seasoning (or more)
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Pepper
Preheat oven to 3. Wash the cauliflower and cut it into small pieces. Place the pieces into a food processor and blend until its smooth, some bigger pieces are ok but most should be chopped up very thing to look like flower. Place the cauliflower into a 8×8 Baking Dish (or similar size) and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Once removed from the oven, let it sit until it is cool and crank up the oven to 450. Once the cauliflower is cooled off, you need to drain the liquid from it. I found this worked best by placing the cauliflower in the middle of a dish towel, and closing up the top, then squeezing. This got out about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of liquid so its a very important step! You can also place the cauliflower between two paper towels and push down to get the liquid out that way.
Once the liquid is out, place the cauliflower in a bowl, combine with 1/4 cup Mexican Cheese and 1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese, the eggs, seasoning, and salt and pepper. Mix until it is all combined. Spray a baking dish with olive oils spray, and put the mixture on to bake. I pressed mine down to combine it and make sure it didn’t fall apart. Just make sure its not too thin! Mine was about 1/4 inch thick. (note, I tried using wax paper and it got stuck PLUS the wax paper burned so be careful if you try that). Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove and top with the remaining cheese (less or more or none, totally up to you!) and bake for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted.
Allow it to fully cool before trying to cut and serve! These are great by themselves, or with some dipping sauce! Enjoy!!
