This recipe was created because I wanted to eat cauliflower, but you just can’t eat cauliflower. It needs to be created and honey child, please it needs to taste not like cauliflower. I found a great recipe on Food Mamma website. But of course like all recipes I don’t really follow them. I think you should make food your own, so tweak this one as well.
The funny thing, my husband could not tell that this was cauliflower. He thought it was real bread, so mama did good, y’all ( in my southern voice).
Cauliflower “Bread” Sticks adapted (From An Edible Mosaic)
1 1/2 cups grated cauliflower
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cloves garlic, grated or minced
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 1/2 oz white sharp cheddar, freshly grated and divided
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup for topping
1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning, divided
chopped basil for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a tray with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
Grate the cauliflower, using a cheese grater or a food processor. Put the grated cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave (uncovered) until softened, about 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally (don’t add water or anything else); cool slightly.
To the bowl with the softened cauliflower, add the garlic, egg, 4 oz of the cheese, 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of the dried Italian herb seasoning (reserving 1/2 teaspoon for topping later), and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Stir to combine and then spread on a sheet pan forming it into a pizza crust.
Bake until set and starting to turn golden, about 25- 30 minutes.
Preheat the broiler. Cut the crust into sticks. Slightly separate the pieces and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top along with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning. Broil a couple of minutes until the cheese is melted and golden in spots. Add basil. Serve hot or warm.
