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.
4 Cups Riced Cauliflower
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
4 Ounces Cream Cheese
Mozzarella Cheese, if desired
1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds, if desired

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.
