Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Cauliflower Breadsticks

It’s holiday season and there is wonderful food wherever you go. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed Christmas dinners, loads and loads of cookies, lovely drinks and so much more. No need to feel guilty about, though. As long as we balance all that holiday food with a few healthier options, we’re just fine. And these cheesy cauliflower breadsticks fit that bill.

Cauliflower

Riced cauliflower is the base for these breadsticks. Whether you’re trying to eat less carbs or have food allergies that don’t allow you to eat bread, these breadsticks will definitely brighten your day. They’ve even converted the die-hard bread eaters in this house (including me). To give them just a bit more texture, I’ve added chickpea flour. But if that’s too much carbs for you, you can omit it.

Cheese

The best part of these breadsticks: cheese. There’s cheese ‘in’ the breadsticks and on top. Cheesy, yummy goodness. Instead of the Emmenthal and Mozzarella, you can easily swap these for your preferred cheeses.

Ingredients

1/2 head of cauliflower (about 500-550 g net weight)

4 eggs

2 tbsp dried or fresh chives

150 g grated Emmenthal cheese

100 g chickpea flour

pinch of salt and pepper

100 g grated Mozzarella

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

‘Rice’ the cauliflower using a food processor or grater and put in a microwave-safe bowl.

Cover with cling film and steam ca. 10 minutes at half power (600W).

Let cool a few minutes.

Put the steamed cauliflower in a large bowl, add eggs, Emmenthal cheese, chives, chickpea flour and salt/pepper.

Cauliflower Breadsticks

Mix well.

      Ligt er beetje aan hoeveel en welke specerijen/kruiden je eventueel gebruikt en welke kaas, daar kun je mee variëren. Ik proef het er wel uit, omdat ik ook weet wat het is. De jongens proeven het niet. Ik heb het ook eens met uitgebakken spekjes en cheddar gemaakt, daarmee proefde je helemaal geen bloemkool.
