My mother made this recipe tonight and my daughter loved it... so I had to share it with you. Since it was a huge hit with the little Munchkin, I will be making this sometime next week. It's great for freezing, so I will be trippling the batch.
1 large head cauliflower, broken into florets
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 egg 1 egg white
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and cool until easily handled.
Chop cauliflower finely until it is the size of rice grains.
Measure out 2 cups cauliflower "rice" into a large bowl. Add bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, egg, egg white, parsley flakes, minced onion, salt, and black pepper. Form into 30 small logs. Arrange on the lined baking sheet; spray with cooking spray.
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned on the bottom, 8 to 9 minutes. Remove from oven, flip, and spray with cooking spray. Continue baking until lightly browned on the other side, 8 to 9 minutes more.
