Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  1. Preparation:
  • Turn the oven’s temperature up to 375 degrees (190 degrees Celsius).
  • It is advisable to line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  1. Prepare the Cauliflower:
  • Remove the leaves and stem from the cauliflower and wash it.
  • Cut the cauliflower into florets.
  • Place the florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble rice-like grains.
  1. Cook the Cauliflower:
  • Place the processed cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave on high for about 5-6 minutes, or until the cauliflower is soft.
  • Allow the cauliflower to cool for a few minutes before transferring it to a clean kitchen towel.
  • Wrap the cauliflower in a towel and wring out any excess moisture. This step is crucial to prevent a soggy bread.
  1. Mix the Dough:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the squeezed cauliflower, shredded mozzarella cheese, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • To make a homogeneous dough, thoroughly combine all of the ingredients.
  1. Add Eggs:
  • Add the eggs to the cauliflower mixture.
  • Mix until the eggs are fully incorporated and the mixture forms a dough-like consistency.
  1. Shape the Bread:
  • Place the dough on the baking sheet that has been prepared.
  • Shape it into a rectangular loaf, approximately ½ inch (1.3 cm) thick.
  1. Bake:
  • Bake the cauliflower bread in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until it’s golden brown on top and set in the center.
  1. Add Parmesan Cheese:
  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the top of the bread during the last 10 minutes of baking.
  1. Cool and Slice:
  • Once the bread is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes.
  • Place the bread on a cooling rack to cool entirely.
  • Once cooled, slice the bread into 12 equal slices.

Cook’s Tips:

  • You can customize the seasoning by adding herbs like thyme, rosemary, or basil.
  • For added flavor, you can brush the top of the bread with melted butter and sprinkle with extra Parmesan before baking.
  • Keep leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight jar. Reheat slices in the toaster or oven to regain their crispiness.
  • This bread can be used for sandwiches, as a side with soups, or enjoyed on its own as a low-carb snack.
