Cauliflower Sticks

Ingredients to make Cauliflower Sticks

  • 1 cauliflower head large sized
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 cup + 3/4 cup (for topping) Mozzarella
  • 1 tsp dried herbs like basil or parsley
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • A pinch of salt

How to make Cauliflower Sticks

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celsius. Rinse the cauliflower and remove the outer leaves and separate into florets. Place the florets into a food processor and process until it is of rice texture.
  2. Place an oven baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Remove it and and line it with a tea/linen towel. Let it cool down a bit until it is safe to touch.
  3. Fold the towel and squeeze the liquid as hard as you can. Be patient and remove all the water.
  4. Increase the temperature to 232 degree celsius.Transfer the cauliflower to a mixing bowl along with egg whites, 1/2 cup cheese, herbs, black pepper, a pinch of salt and mix to combine it well.
  5. Transfer it to baking sheet and flatten with your hands into a rectangular shape, approximately 1/4" thick.
  6. Bake for 18 minutes, then remove it and top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Then bake it for another 5 minutes.
  7. Once cooled, cut it into a 10 rectangular stick shapes and serve warm.

My Tip:

You can use spicy tomato sauce for dipping. For a lighter version do not top with the extra 3/4 cup cheese.
