    I had prepared these cauliflower cheese breadsticks a while ago, but as it happens often, I keep such a lot of recipes to post that sometimes I just forget to post them.

    Yesterday I was at the grocery’s and saw some cauliflowers (even if it’s end season here in Italy) and these cauliflower cheese breadsticks came to my mind…and I prepared them for my lunch and had to stop myself from eating all of them.

    It may resemble the low carb pizza crust, but it isn’t the same thing. Although I just love and prepare often the cauliflower pizza crust, these breadsticks are more like a starter or a side. You can also eat them with an aperitif.

    I saw this tasty recipe on An Edible Mosaic blog, and I just doubled the recipe to have some more breadsticks 😉

    Recipe type: Sides
    Serves: 4
    Ingredients
    • 320 g/11 oz of cauliflower florets (about half a big one)
    • 2 Tsp of extra virgin olive oil
    • 4 garlic cloves
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 mozzarella (200g/ 7oz)
    • 1 Tsp dried herbs
    • salt
    • pepper
    Instructions
    1. Turn on the oven to 350°F/180°C.
    2. Using a greater or, better, a food processor, reduce the cauliflower florets to rice size.
    3. Put it into a microwave bowl and microwave it for 8 minutes without adding anything nor covering the bowl.
    4. In a small pan, add the olive oil and the well minced garlic and let it lightly color and then turn off the gas.
    5. Cut the mozzarella in thin pieces and put ¼ of it apart for topping.
    6. Take the cauliflower bowl and add the garlic, the lighly beaten eggs, ½ Tsp of dried herbs, salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined.
    7. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray some cooking spray on it.
    8. Pour the cauliflower misture and, with a spatula, level it to be uniform (I used a 22x35cm - 8.6x13.7in baking sheet) and bake for 30 minutes.
    9. Take the baking sheet out of the oven, cover it with another sheet of parchment paper and then turn it upside down on another baking sheet.
    10. Bake for 10 minutes more.
    11. Take it out of the oven and cut it in breadsticks. Add the mozzarella and herbs you had set apart.
    12. Turn the grill on and bake for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.
    13. Take it out of the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. After a while the cheese will solidify and you can pick them as breadsticks.
    14. Buon appetito!
