Cauliflower "Bread" Sticks - Gluten free, egg free

1/2 head cauliflower
1-1/2 teaspoon Ener-G Egg Replacer + 2 Tablespoons warm water (or 1 egg)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Line bread pan with parchment paper.  
  • Grate raw cauliflower into microwave safe bowl. Microwave grated cauliflower for 8 minutes (adding no additional water). Carefully remove bowl from microwave and add egg replacer and water (or egg), mozzarella, dried herbs, and garlic. Mix well. 
  • Spread mixture into bottom of bread pan and flatten.   

  • Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  • Bake at 450 degrees F for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Use parchment paper to lift bread sticks out of pan and transfer to baking sheet.
  • Use pizza cutter to cut into sticks and flip over.

  • Sprinkle tops with Parmesan cheese.
  • Place baking sheet with sticks back in oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until tops are browned. (I orignally did this last step with my oven set to broil and my parchment paper started to burn! Ooops! Turns out paper burns above 450 degrees. Who knew? careful!)
  • Enjoy!
Serves 3 (2 sticks each)

  1. This looks perfect for our allergy family. Have you ever made a double recipe or does that mess with its awesomeness? Also, what size of pan did you use?
