I have a real treat for all of you today… low-carb, grain-free and gluten-free cheesy cauliflower breadsticks. Yep, these gluten-free breadsticks are made with cauliflower. No flour. No grains. Notta. Zilch. Ain’t going there.
Now you can have your cauliflower breadsticks and eat ’em too!
To make this wonderful gluten-free cauliflower breadstick creation yourself, you need to give yourself a little time to prepare the cauliflower in your food processor. You want to pulse the cauliflower florets into small, rice-like pieces. An awesome shortcut is to buy cauliflower rice or crumbs already pre-chopped. My friend Julie says Trader Joe’s has cauliflower rice, and I just found cauliflower rice at Costco. Score! Having the cauliflower already “riced” saves you 10 minutes and a lot of clean up.
My entire family loves cauliflower. I make gluten-free cauliflower rice, cauliflower buffalo wings, carrot and cauliflower soup, and gluten-free cauliflower mashed potatoes too (still perfecting my recipe – I’ll share when it’s ready).
Making these cauliflower breadsticks was a no brainer for me – I knew I could get my kids to eat their veggies in a fun and exciting way. Heck, these breadsticks are totally adult-friendly too. I ate too many to count!
This recipe for gluten-free cauliflower breadsticks is so versatile too. If you’re not up for breadsticks, use the same technique to create a pizza crust. Instead of shaping the mixture into a rectangle, shape it into a pizza circle. Top it with pizza sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings and you have one awesome gluten-free, grain-free, low carb pizza.
Also, you’ll notice that I topped some of my cauliflower breadsticks with cheese, and others without. My son isn’t a big fan of melted cheese, so he enjoyed the “topless” ones. Here’s a close up:
It’s Gluten-Free, Pass It On
I decided to revitalize this recipe as part of the It’s Gluten-Free, Pass It On campaign that I’m doing with my fellow gluten-free bloggers. Each month we choose a theme or ingredient to work with, and then create a new recipe (or share an old recipe) that contains that ingredient. This month’s theme is cauliflower. I knew it was the perfect time to revitalize this recipe because the star of the dish is cauliflower (and it’s a super versatile recipe too).
I encourage you to check out all the cauliflower recipes posted by my gluten-free blogger friends. My friend Jane over at The Heritage Cook created Grilled Buffalo Cauliflower Florets. Yummy! My friend Raia over at Raia’s Recipes created this recipe for homemade lacto-fermented cauliflower. Amanda over at Gluten Free Miami created this soothing gluten-free roasted cauliflower soup. And finally, Alicia at Eat Your Way Clean created this AIP-friendly turmeric cauliflower bake – so good for you!! #PassItOnGF
