Cauliflower and Garlic Cheese Sticks

Low Carb Cheesy Cauliflower-Garlic Breadsticks looks and tastes like cheesy bread!
Author: Lisa Kerhin


  • 1/4 to 1/3 of a large head of cauliflower riced
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large egg white lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 tsp. dried Italian herb seasoning divided
  • Marinara Sauce for dipping


  • Preheat the oven to 400. Line a 8" by 8"pan with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
  • To “rice” the cauliflower, use your cheese grater to grate it or toss it in a food processor and pulse till "riced". When you’re done, you should have about 1.5 cups lightly packed.
  • Place the riced cauliflower into a microwavable bowl and microwave until softened, about 5 minutes depending on your microwave (DO NOT add any water).
  • While that is cooking, heat the oil in a small skillet over low heat and add your garlic until softened.
  • Add the garlic mixture to the softened cauliflower and mix in the lightly beaten egg white, 1/2 tsp of the Italian seasonings, and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella. Stir and mix well, then spread onto your prepared pan. It will be a thin layer.
  • Bake until it just starts to turn golden brown; about 20 - 30 minutes, depending on your oven.
  • Remove from the oven, flip the loaf over so the bottom side is now on top (remove parchment paper) and add the remaining cheese and a sprinkle with the rest of  the Italian herb seasoning.
  • Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden.
  • Cool (until they harden slightly) and cut into pieces and serve hot or warm.
  • Serve with marinara sauce, if desired.
