Choices/Exchanges: 1 Nonstarchy vegetable, 1/2 Fat



  • fresh riced cauliflower
    2 (16-oz) bags
  • egg whites
    1/4 cup
  • shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (divided use)
    1 cup
  • garlic powder
    1 tsp
  • dried oregano
    1 tsp
  • dried basil
    1/2 tsp
  • dried thyme
    1/2 tsp
  • black pepper
    1/4 tsp


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Pour on the riced cauliflower and spread into an even layer. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove cauliflower from the oven, and turn the temperature up to 450 degrees F.

  3. Line a large bowl with two layers of paper towels or a clean dish towel. Pour in the cooked cauliflower and let it cool.

  4. Add another layer of towels on top of the cooled cauliflower and press down with your hands. Squeeze out as much liquid as you can.

  5. In a large mixing bowl, mix the cauliflower, egg whites, 1/2 cup of cheese, garlic powder, herbs and pepper.

  6. Line your baking sheet with a fresh layer of parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray. Place your cauliflower dough on the prepared baking sheet and press into an even rectangle about 1/4” thick and 7x9” in size. Bake for 20 minutes, then sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Broil a couple more minutes until the cheese melts and starts to brown.

  7. Let cool, then cut into 12 breadsticks.
