I have a real treat for all of you today… low-carb, grain-free and gluten-free cheesy breadsticks. You are not going to believe this, but I made these gluten-free breadsticks with a cauliflower crust. No flour. No grains. Notta. Zilch. Ain’t going there.
Now you can have your gluten-free breadsticks and eat ’em too!
To make this wonderful gluten-free 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 in Lone Tree, CO. Score! Having the cauliflower already “riced” saves you 10 minutes and a lot of dishes.
The entire gluten-free breadstick recipe is below to help you get your cauliflower breadsticks right from start to finish.
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 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 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 gluten-free 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:
