A different take on cauliflower cheese. I love using cauliflower in recipes as it can be bland by itself but when cooked with herbs or spices it takes on the flavours of the other ingredients. Pair it with the yoghurt aioli for a healthy treat.
Cauliflower ‘bread’ sticks
- ½ a cauliflower
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup onion, minced
- ¼ cup bell pepper, diced (optional)
- ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup breadcrumbs
- ¼ minced parsley (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 200g plain yoghurt
- 1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
- lemon juice, to taste
- salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 190°C. Spray a nonstick baking tray with cooking spray.
Steam the cauliflower in hot water for 3-5 minutes or until nice and soft, drain and blend in the food processor until it resembles rice. Squeeze out the excess water.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon of mixture in your hands and roll into small oval shapes.
Place on the baking tray 1 cm apart and bake for about 20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking until golden.
For the aioli combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and season to taste.
