Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

I made cauliflower pizza bites last year for a party I hosted, and have been wanting to try cauliflower in a breadstick recipe. Although this recipe took me a little longer than I expected, IT WAS WORTH IT!!! If you are looking for an awesome low carb breadstick recipe, look no further!!!!!!

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut the florets off of a head of cauliflower and make sure to wash them before putting them into a food processor. You made need to processor the cauliflower in two sessions unless you have a large processor. You should make sure to grind up the cauliflower into a rice like texture. Make sure you do not miss any large clumps!

  • After you have minced up the cauliflower, place it in a prepared baking dish (spray with cooking spray) and cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, remove the dish from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Turn the heat up to 450 degrees. Place the cauliflower in a large kitchen towel and squeeze as much water out as you can. You should extract around 1 1/4 cup of liquid from one head of cauliflower. This step may take you about 3 minutes. Pour the liquid down the drain.

  • Place the dry cauliflower into the bowl with all other ingredients except the spray butter and 3/4 cup of shredded cheese. You will use 1/2 cup of shredded cheese in the cauliflower dough, and then you will sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup over the dough once it has cooked for 20 minutes.

  • Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread the dough on the paper. Form the dough into a rectangle (with your hands) and make sure to smooth out as flat as possible. Spray the top of the dough with spray butter (about 15 sprays).
