You are just going to love these cauliflower Cheese Sticks! Even my son, who isn’t too fond of vegetables- let alone cauliflower- asked me to make two batches. He loves pizza, come on who doesn’t, but we all know pizza is not so kind on the waist or the hips!!
This is a recipe that my second cousin, or is it my first cousin once removed??? Never did understand how that works? Anyway, her name is Sarah Krchnavy, and she is a Beach Body Coach and is always sharing healthy ways to eat. You can find her complete recipe HERE , but I am going to show you step by step how to make it.
First, you need to grate some raw cauliflower. I have never done that before, but it’s really easy with a hand grater,and I would suggest doing it on a plate or a large cutting board because it does have a tendency to “chip off” all over the place. Her recipe calls for one cup of cauliflower.
To that you add 1/4 egg substitute, but I just used a regular egg, beaten- before putting adding it to the grated cauliflower. To this mixture add 3/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. The recipe says 1 cup, but you need to reserve 1/4 for on the top after it bakes.
This is all the ingredients mixed together!
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray. (Sarah used a 9 x 13 pan, but I used a baking sheet and only spread it half way across.
Spread it evenly, it won’t take up the entire pan, you want it to be about 1- 1/2″ thick.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and flip it over. You can use large spatulas to do this, but what I did was cut the bigger square into 4 smaller squares then it was really easy to flip.
Now you want to increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees …
and bake it again for another 15 minutes or until the top is baked
After 15 minutes, remove from the oven and using a pizza cutter, cut into strips, separating them.
Sprinkle with garlic salt
and the 1/4 cup reserved cheese.
Ready to go back into the 450 degree oven for 10 more minutes….
…or until cheese is melted!
Serve with pizza sauce or the recipe Sarah included for her marinara sauce.
Even though it is a little time consuming, it is so easy!!
This is low carb, high protein, but more importantly…it is DELICIOUS!
You won’t even know it’s cauliflower and a great way to get some vegetables into your kids meals.
