Health Tip of the Day: 3 Ingredient Baked Cheddar Cauliflower Bites

Baked cauliflower bites are made with just 3 ingredients, along with some herbs and spices.  They are a perfect swap out for fries and a great way to sneak veggies into a picky-eaters diet! Freeze or refrigerate the cooked batch and enjoy them at work or as an anytime snack! Try making the recipe your own by switching up the cheeses. 

Ingredients

2 cups cauliflower florets (frozen or fresh)

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 egg 

oregano, garlic powder (optional, season to taste)

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 375F. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin tin with oil and set aside (you can also use a 12 cup standard muffin tin). 

Place cauliflower florets in a microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. microwave for 7-8 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. This step can also be achieved on the stove top by blanching cauliflower in hot water for 5 minutes. Be sure to drain well. 

Place steamed cauliflower in a food processor and plus for just a few seconds or until the cauliflower resembles rice. Remove from food processor, place in a clean dishcloth and squeeze to drain as much water as you can out of the cauliflower. 

Place cauliflower in a large bowl, add egg, cheddar cheese, herbs, and salt & pepper. Mix with a spoon until fully combined. Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture into each muffin tin using a cook scoop or by hand. If you have muffin pan liners go ahead and use them because they will ensure the cauliflower bites don't stick to the pan.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden and the middle is no longer soft. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes before removing firm pan. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
