I’m excited to begin posting recipes! I’ll will try to post a large variety of recipes to help those in all phases of the program. For now, here is just a couple yummy cauliflower recipes to kick things off!
Cauliflower Crust Pizza!
(Lean & Green)
1.5 cup Cooked Cauliflower, frozen (you can substitute half a cup for 1/2 c tomato sauce if you want to put some of the cheese on top/add toppings)
7 Egg Whites (approximately 1 cup egg beaters)
0.7 cup low fat Mozzarella Cheese, Finely Shredded (<6g fat per serving)
0.2 c Parmesan Cheese, Grated
Mix the cauliflower in a food processor until all the lumps are gone.
Add this to a mixing bowl and mash all other ingredients together (like meatloaf).
Then turn out the mixture in a half size cookie sheet or 9×13 pan with parchment paper/aluminum foil.
Bake 20 min at 425 degrees.
Then you can add toppings/sauce and bake another 5 min.
(Optional) flip and bake an additional 10 min for a crispier crust.
