• Low Carb Cauliflower Bread That’s Actually GOOD!

    If you are a carb watcher as I am, or if you are just into healthy eating and good taste, I think you will really enjoy this recipe. Avoiding bread is not really a big problem for me, but it would be nice to have something to smear a little peanut butter on every now and then, know what  I mean?

    This morning I decided it was way past time for me to create some type of low carb bread for those weak moments. I have to say that what I came up with is so good that I haven’t quite made my head understand that it is a perfectly legal food for me. Of course, I didn’t tell Rickey that I was serving anything but good food. He loved it too!

    I’m going to start with the photos on this one. You will find the recipe below those. Since I already had the uncooked ingredients for roasted cauliflower (minus the cheese) stirred up in the fridge, I started with that, ricing it in the food processor.

    I mixed my raw riced cauliflower with cream cheese, eggs, and seasonings. The green that you see is the fresh parsley that was already in my cauliflower mixture.

    Since I was experimenting, I only baked 2. I formed into patties and placed in pan well greased with olive oil.

    While I had two baking in the oven, I decided to try pan frying a couple.

    Since the fried bread was done first, I used it to make a sandwich. Only a half-sandwich since it is very rich!

    I couldn't resist taking a bite before I took this photo. DELISH!

    This last photo shows the difference in fried vs baked. The fried is delicious...even if you eat it as a fritter. The baked probably has a tougher, more bread like texture.

    Ingredients

    4 Cups Riced Cauliflower
    2 Eggs
    1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
    4 Ounces Cream Cheese
    Mozzarella Cheese, if desired
    1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds, if desired
    Salt
    Cayenne Pepper
    Your Favorite Spices

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

    1. Pulse raw cauliflower in food processor until it resembles a rice-like texture.

    2. Put in large bowl and stir in all ingredients. I threw in a handful of grated Mozzarella cheese for good measure.

    3. The fried bread is delicious, but it is a little harder to get the right texture. I learned that the pan needs to be on very low heat, about 250. When you put the cauliflower in the pan, walk away and leave it. If you turn it too much it will fall apart.

    4. Once the fried cauliflower is out of the pan, put it in the fridge to get completely cold. As you use it, you can sit it out so that it can return to room temp.

    5. The oven-baked cauliflower bread is much easier. Simply put each piece of bread on a well-greased pan. Set timer for 45 minutes. That probably won’t be enough time for them to brown, but you can begin checking about then.

    Your seasoning depends on how you will use your bread. Since I was experimenting with a sandwich in mind, these worked well. Had that sandwich consisted of peanut butter, I would have wanted a plainer bread.

      Loved the receipe for low carb cauliflower bread but am hoping you will tell us how many carbs you figured in one round piece or however you counted the carbs.
      Thank you!

        Quite honestly, I don’t count them as any because due to specific testing I have done, I can have as much cauliflower as I want. BUT…if you were being very specific, there are no carbs in anything in the recipe except the cauliflower. Once cup of “riced” cauliflower has 5 carbs, but it also has 2 grams of fiber to figure out of the equation, leaving a cup to equal 3 carbs. I doubt one of the patties would ever be over a cup so this is a very long answer to say 3 carbs! :)
