Cauliflower breadsticks

Ingredients:

Cauliflower - 1 large head

Egg- 1

A mix of grated cheese  - Mozzarella, Sharp cheddar or Texmex - 3/4 cup (use half for the dough and reserve half for topping in the end)

Italian seasoning - 1 tsp

Garlic and parsley powder -1 tsp

A mix of dried herbs -1 tsp (oregano,basil rosemary and thyme)

Salt and pepper to taste



Method:

1.Cut the cauliflower into florets wash well and steam them until 3/4 th cooked in a steamer.

(Note : chop cauliflower in food processor to a coarse consistency or grate it and microwave it or bake it till 3/4 cooked )

2. Leave it in the steamer pot for excess water to drain off and cool.


3.Squish well with ur hand until all the florets are broken and it becomes a grainy consistency few bigger pieces are fine. (if u have already grated in step 1 leave out this step.)

4.&5. Squeeze off all the liquid with a kitchen tea towel.Feeling lazy like me then- spread it on few sheets of  paper napkin to air dry while u attend other chores.


6.Put all the rest of the ingredients with cauliflower  and mix well (with ur hand)

7.Put it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. spread it  evenly.Pat the top and sides so it sticks together.

8&9..Bake at 375-400 F for 18 minutes pull it out and spread the reserved cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.


I moved my bread sticks to the lowest rack and left it in the oven for another 10 minutes soon after switching off. (if any sogginess is there it would dry out )

 Let it rest  for 5 minutes outside then slice and enjoy with any sauce of your choice.
