Baked Cauliflower Breadsticks #BREADBAKERS


Breadsticks  with cauliflower is unbelievable, that's what I thought, till I could bake them.   Seen this recipe on  a cooking channel, ,many  years back, even before I started blogging.  When cauliflower are in season I, make these breadsticks,  we enjoy these .. they are just 
delicious and have it with a bowl of soup.  This  is  made at least twice every winter for our dinner.  These are cheesy and yum... have it with a bowl of soup and you are sated.     

When the theme- baking bread with fall fruits and vegetables, for example, apples, grapes, pears, persimmon, quince, sweet potatoes, potatoes, figs, fennel, cauliflower, broccoli, acorn squash, butternut squash, cranberries, swiss chard etc. was announced by Pavani our host of this month for bread bakers event.  First decided to make a Persimmon Bread, but, when I was going through my drafts,  seen this  and decided to post it.   Thanks Pavani for hosting this event. 


Ingredients
1  Large Cauliflower - chopped into florets
2 Large E
ggs  -  lightly beaten
5 Cloves Garlic -  minced
1 Cup Cheeza Cheese -   grated
½ Teaspoon Basil

½ Teaspoon Rosemary
½ Teaspoon Salt
½ Teaspoon  Black pepper powder

1/2 Teaspoon Chilly flakes

Method



Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a 2 shallow baking trays  with parchment paper and let the paper be extra, so that you can lift them when cooled.  Here I have used the aluminium oil ice tray to make these.



Place the cauliflower  heads in food processor until very finely chopped, like rice . Take the cauliflower rice into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 6 minutes. Allow to cool a little, then place the cauliflower rice in a cheese cloth and squeeze to remove as much water as possible. Return  the cauliflower to bowl.



Combine cauliflower with the egg, garlic, 1/2 the cheese,  basil, rosemary, salt, chilly flakes and pepper powder, mix well.  Spread the mixture on the prepared trays  ¼-inch thick ,  do not increase the height of the mixture or else they will not be crisp or baked properly.  Top them with the  remaining  cheese, sprinkle pepper powder. 



Bake for 20  to 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden and cheese is browned and bubbly. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing into  pieces. Serve warm.



My Notes

Here I have used cheeza which is mix of cheddar and mozzarella. You can use half and half Parmesan or cheddar but shredded mozzarella cheese is a must.  You can also increase the quantity of cheese according to your taste



Prefect with a bowl of soup....enjoy
