Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets (about 6 cups)
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Marinara sauce, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. Process cauliflower in batches in a food processor until finely ground. Microwave, covered, in a microwave-safe bowl on high until tender, about 8 minutes. When cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze dry. Return to bowl.
Meanwhile, in another bowl, mix cheeses together. Stir half of cheese mixture into cauliflower, reserving remainder. Combine next six ingredients; stir into cauliflower.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, shape cauliflower mixture into an 11x9-in. rectangle. Bake until edges are golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Top with reserved cheese; bake until melted and bubbly, 10-12 minutes. Cut into 12 breadsticks. If desired, serve with marinara sauce. Yield: 1 dozen.

Test Kitchen tips
  • As long as you line your pan with parchment paper, these breadsticks can be made in any shape you like. A round pizza pan works nicely as well.
  • Customize to your heart's desire by adding toppings such as pepperoni, mushrooms and olives before baking.
