Cheesy Garlic Cauliflower Cheese Sticks. Everyone loves these, great if you’re craving garlic bread but trying to save on those extra calories.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 of a large head of cauliflower, “riced“
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg (white), lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, divided
  • Marinara Sauce for dipping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
  2. To “rice” the cauliflower, use your cheese grater (or food processor). When you’re done, you should have about 1.5 cups lightly packed. Place the riced cauliflower into a microwavable bowl and microwave until softened, about 5 minutes depending on your microwave (no need to add any water, drain).
  3. While that is cooking, heat the oil in a small skillet over low heat and add your garlic until softened. When your cauliflower is softened, add the garlic mixture, lightly beaten egg white, Italian seasonings, and 3/4 of the mozzarella. Stir and mix well, then spread onto your prepared pan.
  4. Bake until they start to turn golden brown; about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip the loaf over so the bottom side is now on top and add the remaining cheese and a sprinkle more of the Italian herb seasoning. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden.
  5. Cool (until they harden slightly) and cut into pieces and serve hot or warm. Heat up marinara sauce and serve

  1. Ok, I was completely skeptical on this recipe, but these are SO GOOD. I was so surprised! I couldn’t believe that these could actually have good flavor and still be healthy. My husband instantly approved and even said, “These aren’t going to last all night.” We did have a little left, but I also doubled the batch. I’m sure these will be made again soon! I even recommended them to a friend who cannot have gluten, and she said they looked really good.

    Also, I’m featuring these on my website PinterestForDinner.com, which reviews a lot of the Pinterest recipes we see. I’m rating these 5.0/5.0.

    • Glad you enjoyed this recipe. I read your write-up on it as well. And I have a solution to one of the problems that you had. When flipping the bread, no need for spatulas. Just place a lined pan of the same size or larger on top of the bread, and flip it over. The bread will land in the new pan with no problems.

  2. Hm… has anyone tried slicing the cauliflower head thin, say with a mandolin and spray with oil and season, then add cheese? I wonder… may have to experiment if no one has already.

    • Here is an estimate for the entire recipe (so you would have to divide the numbers to get the values for your serving size). This also does not include the marinara sauce.
