Cauliflower Flat Bread

May 1, 2013

 I'm not a huge fan of vegetables and I like my carbs.  So since buckling down on my nutrition I began experimenting with recipes that would trick my mind into thinking I was eating carbs.   After several attempts I knocked this one out of the park!   JT ate half the batch (and I ate the other half), which is the equivalent to us eating an entire head of cauliflower!  Not bad for two people who don't particularly like veggies.  

 

Ingredients

1 Large Head of Cauliflower

3 Whole Eggs

1/3 Cup Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt

1 Cup of Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese

1 T Minced Garlic

1 ½ T Oregano

1 tsp Kosher Salt

½ tsp Ground Pepper

Pinch of Basil

Optional: Marinara for dipping sauce

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Chop cauliflower into florets and rinse well. 

  3. To prepare the cauliflower you will use a food processor and work in small batches.  Add approximately 1-½ cups of cauliflower to food processor and pulse until cauliflower is the texture of breadcrumbs or rice.   When each batch is complete transfer to a large microwave safe bowl and continue this process until all cauliflower crumbed. 

  4. Cover bowl of cauliflower (I used a clean towel) and microwave for 4 minutes and stir.  Microwave for an additional 4 minutes or until cauliflower is soft.

  5. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and ¾ cup of the mozzarella cheese. 

  6. Fold remaining ingredients into the crumbed cauliflower.  The mixture will resemble a wet dough.   

  7. Spread dough on parchment paper and flatten out.  If your batch is large you may make 2 flat breads using separate baking sheets.  You may spread a thin layer of olive oil over the bread if you desire for taste. 

  8. Bake 30 minutes until golden brown and top with remaining ¼ cup of mozzarella cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes.  Let cool and slice with a pizza cutter and serve with marinara if desired.
