This is a great low-carb recipe I found on the Super Healthy Kids site and adapted slightly. I can eat these cheesy cauliflower dippers guilt-free when my family is having pizza, or we can all enjoy it. The kids love anything dunkable! Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it lightly with cooking spray.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add cauliflower, reduce heat, and let simmer until soft and mashable, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain, return to the pot, and mash with a potato masher. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then place into a clean dish towel or paper towels and squeeze as hard as you can to remove any excess water.

  • Return cauliflower to the pot and add 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese, egg, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder; stir until well combined. Spoon the cauliflower mixture onto the prepared pan and use your hands to form it into a rectangle.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown and firm, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with remaining mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Return to the oven and continue to bake until the cheese is melted, 7 to 10 minutes. Cut into 10 "breadsticks."
