Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 8-10 bread sticks

Ingredients

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 1 cheese cloth
  • 1 pasture raised, organic chicken egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup raw shredded cheese, I used mild white cheddar
  • 1 tbsp shredded parmesean (raw cheese)
  • 1 tbsp grass fed, organic butter
  • 1/4 tsp dried organo
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/8 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • fresh herbs to top the bread sticks
  • 1 tbsp shredded Parmesan to top the bread sticks

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and place parchment paper in a loaf pan.
  2. In a food processor or blender, chop the cauliflower until it is in small pieces, but not close to being pureed.
  3. Steam cook the cauliflower in a pan with a lid.
  4. led the cauliflower cool and place it in cheese cloth. Strain all water out. This is a laborious task, but be sure to get out as much water as you possibly can, otherwise your bread sticks will end up mushy. Set aside
  5. In a bowl add the beaten egg, raw cheese, Parmesan, oregano, bails, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir, just until mixed.
  6. Add the cauliflower "dough" to the mixture. Stir until well combined.
  7. Place the dough into the loaf pan with parchment paper. Cook for 25-30 minutes, until the top starts to brown.
  8. Remove it from the oven and pull out the parchment paper, removing the bread sticks from the pan. Place new parchment paper on a baking sheet. Flip your loaf over so what was the bottom of the loaf is now the top. Add Parmesan and herbs. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, until Parmesan is melted.
  9. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving, stays next day as well and can easily be re-heated in a toaster oven or regular oven.
