Cauliflower Cheesy Biscuits 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Perfectly-portioned, and entirely gluten-free, these cheesy bites have less than 25 calories per biscuit. They might be small, but they bring a burst of garlicky-cheddar flavor every time you pop them in your mouth. You can serve them as your “bread basket” before dinner or on a platter for a fun appetizer.
Think back on the days of the restaurant bread basket—endless amounts of bread with butter or olive oil delivered to your table as soon as you sat down. I have to admit; I miss the days of free biscuits, bread sticks and all other carb-heavy appetizers so now we have a new option.


Ingredients:
1 cauliflower head, leaves removed
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Directions:
Step 1: Make Mashed Cauliflower
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Steam cauliflower for about 10-12 minutes or until very tender, then transfer to a food processor. Add minced garlic and pulse several times until smooth and creamy.

Step 2: Mix
Transfer mashed cauliflower into a large mixing bowl. Add in two whole eggs, cheddar cheese, Nonfat Greek yogurt, salt and pepper and mix together.

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Then, slowly fold the egg whites into the cauliflower mixture.


Step 3: Bake
Coat a mini muffin pan with cooking spray of your choice. Then fill the cups to the top with the cauliflower mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

Remove from the pan, and set on a cooling rack.
