What You Need:

  • 1 small bag of cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup 1% shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp basil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In small pan sauté olive oil and garlic for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Set to the side.
  3. In a food processor chop cauliflower until it looks like rice. You want it finally chopped but not total mush.
  4. Place the cauliflower rice in a cheesecloth and wring out all excess moisture.
  5. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Combine cauliflower with egg, olive oil, garlic, cheese, and seasonings.
  6. Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper (leaving extra parchment paper so that you can lift the loaf out of the pan) and spray with olive oil. Dump cauliflower mixture into the bread pan and press down evenly. Bake for 25-30.
  7. Like a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with olive oil. When loaf is finished baking, remove from oven, carefully flip the loaf onto the baking sheet so it is upside down. You can lift it out of the bread pan by the parchment paper if necessary.
  8. Bake for 10 more min until loaf is golden brown.
  9. Turn oven to broil.
  10. Remove loaf from oven, sprinkle worth a little more mozzarella cheese, salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Broil for 1-2 min until cheese melts. Serve with a side of marinara sauce.

Container Equivalents: 1 green, 1/2 of a blue and 1 tsp ( 3 cauliflower sticks )

    Can’t wait to try this!!! Going to buy a food processor today 🙂 The only thing I see different in this recipe…is that in the video it shows to steam the cauliflower after chopping it and then after cooling to wring it out in cheesecloth to get all of moisture out?….and I just now saw Heather’s post that she did not have to steam it….YES! One less step! 🙂

  • Carol witzig

    I cant wait to try these. They sound & look delish. Thanks for sharing

    Hi! I am allergic to egg white, cow’s milk, wheat and maize.What can I substitute the egg with? I can make and use goat’s cheese. The egg is my problem… could I use a mashed banana? Thanks!

    If there is an egg is there a red container measurement?

  • Meffy

    I made these today. They look just like the photo. I used 1 raw small cauliflower head and chopped it up in my vita mix with the dry chop container. They smell and taste great. The recipe made (8) 1″ sticks. I wrapped them up in servings of two for the week.

  • PattiC

    I made these, and they are not bad. I used a half a head of fresh cauliflower which amounted to about 3 cups processed, should probably have been 2 cups as my sticks were a little too thick, but still good.

  • Kim

    I didn’t boil or steam the cauliflower but it turned out pretty mushy/not dippable. Tasted Ok. If I make it again I will wring out any moisture before adding the egg/spices.

    • Autumn Calabrese

      Definitely need to use the cheese cloth and wring out the moisture or they will be to mushy to make into a “bread stick”

  • Kirsty

    Actually, I did some research, probably a half a head of cauliflower 🙂

  • Heather

    Guys it’s marinara sauce! Its in the grocery store with spaghetti sauce and it counts at a purple container. There are tons of recipes to make marinara sauce also and it counts as a green if you don’t add any sugar! I love this recipe and if yours turns out mushy then you probably boiled or steamed the cauliflower which is great for pizza crust but wrong for bread sticks! The cheese, eggs, and olive oil is the only moisture you need in these!!!

  • Melissa Broussard m

    I think it’s 16oz or a pound
    You can also buy a head instead of bag.

  • Keilah

    Thank you Autumn,
    These are amazing!!

  • Laura

    I made these but they didn’t turn out? Should I have wrung out the mixture to get rid of the Moisture? Mine were soggy amd never firmed up. 🙁

  • Shonda


  • Rebecca

    I used a 1/2 of cauliflower head. Uncooked. “Riced” it in the food processor on pulse to make sure I didn’t over cut it. It’s still cooking but with a 1/2 a head it looks to make about 6 slices that are approx an inch thick.

  • Christina

    How many total cauliflower sticks does it make?

    These. Were. Amazing ***

  • Jessica

    These. We’re. Amazing.

  • Allison

    *Finely chopped, not finally chopped. Please share a marinara recipe too since of course, as pictured, people want to eat these with marinara. Also, this recipe would work better if the cauliflower were steamed after chopping, and then excess moisture was rung out so they won’t fall apart.

  • Lisa Hovnanian

    You say “3 sticks = 1 Green and .5 Blue” But how many sticks do you get when you cut the entire recipe? How many servings is the entire recipe?

  • Shannon

    LOOKS amazing!! Wish I could have cheese 🙂

  • Kristen

    Same question about the cauliflower – cooked? raw? frozen?

    Also….can you add a “print” option???? 🙂

  • Dana

    I’m thinking its 2 servings! If so wouldn’t this also be 1/2 red because of the egg.

  • Tara

    Makes a great pizza crust

  • Jennifer Cedre

    What size of the loaf pan

  • Ali Lovano

    Do you precooked the cauliflower before you chop and bake it? Or do you used raw cauliflower?

  • Laura sanders

    Is this recipe using uncooked frozen cauliflower ?

  • Charlene Strycharz

    Absolutely fabulous!

  • Shari

    This looks amazing! Can an egg substitute be used in place of the egg?

  • Dana

    How many cups cauliflower is that? And do you cook it first or do you put it in the food processor raw?

  • Julieta Anzueto

    thank you for the delicious recipe it’s really good , thank for change my life

  • Melissa Wade

    This looks fantastic, but for those of us in the U.K. how much cauliflower is in a bag??

    • Kirsty

      I would say probably a small/medium head of cauliflower 🙂

  • lauren

    how many serving are in this recipe? Thank you!

  • hali
