Easy Healthy Cauliflower Cheese Bread Recipe (Gluten-free, Kid-friendly)

Share

This easy healthy cauliflower cheese bread does not use wheat flour. Actually, this recipe does not need any flour. You can add some coconut flour (which is a healthy flour) only if your dough, for some reasons, does not hold a shape. For example, if you don’t squeeze enough liquid out of the cooked cauliflower. Otherwise, this is a perfect healthy cauliflower cheese bread recipe with no flour, easy to make, full of cheese and veggies (read, cauliflower). I would also try mixing the cauliflower with broccoli next time. Why not?

This recipe can be named a cauliflower flatbread, cauliflower pizza, cauliflower cheese breadsticks, cauli bread,  cauliflower bread or cheesy veggie bread. Whatever sounds best:)

Healthy Cauliflower Cheese Bread Recipe (Gluten-free, Kid-friendly)

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F degrees.
  2. Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped and looks like rice. You can shred the florets in a manual shredder using the big teeth too.
  3. Now it’s time to cook the shredded/processed cauliflower. I cooked mine in a skillet until the cauliflower rice got soft, about 5-10 minutes. Alternatively, you can bake the cauliflower in an oven at 375 F, for about 20 minutes (or until soft), or you can steam it in a steamer basket.
  4. When the cauliflower is cool, transfer it to a bowl lined with cheesecloth or a nut milk bag. Close the nut milk bag or cheesecloth ends. Squeeze the liquid out of the cauliflower. I didn’t squeeze very hard but made sure the cauliflower forms a ball inside a nut milk bag.
  5. Shred the cheese.
  6. Transfer a squeezed cauliflower into another bowl, mix it with 1 cup of cheese, salt, pepper, dried basil, and eggs. Mix to combine. Squeeze the mixture in your hand. If it doesn’t hold a shape, add 1 tbsp of Coconut Flour. If it holds the shape, no need to add the flour.
  7. Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form it into a rectangle shape about 1/4 inches thick.
  8. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked.
  9. Remove the baking sheet out of the oven and sprinkle some cheese on top (optional). Bake for another 5-10 minutes until the cheese on top melts.
  10. Cut into rectangles or square shapes. Serve with tomato sauce or ketchup for dipping.
