Cauliflower Cheese Sticks with Marinara Sauce
Snacking is part of nearly all of our diets and finding snacks that are fulfilling and enjoyable is important to help us meet our goals. I find that when many people go on weight loss diets they choose healthy snacks that are not fulfilling like raw vegetables and this leads to binging later in the day on food they actually want to eat. Finding snacks that will satisfy your appetite and help you in maintaining calorie balance is critical.
For the Crust •2 – 10oz packages of frozen cauliflower rice or regular frozen cauliflower blended into rice
•1⁄4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
•1⁄4 cup shredded mozzarella and provolone cheese mix
•1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
For the topping
•1 cup of shredded mozzarella and provolone cheese mix
•1⁄2 cup shredded parmesan cheese •1 can of marinara sauce
•Preheat your oven to 400°F.
•If you use frozen, riced cauliflower, thaw it in the microwave until it is no longer frozen. It doesn’t need to be cooked, just thawed. If you use a full head of cauliflower, use a food processor to achieve a riced consistency.
•Using a cheesecloth, squeeze as much water out of the cauliflower as possible. If you don’t have a cheesecloth use a thin kitchen towel or paper towels. Do not skip this step
•In a large bowl, mix together the cauliflower, 2 beaten eggs, 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, 1⁄4 cup mozzarella and provolone cheese mix, and 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning.
•Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and spray with oil. Press the cauliflower mix onto the pan with your hands until it is about 1⁄4 of an inch thick.
•Bake for 15 minutes.
•Remove from the oven and add 1 cup of mozzarella and provolone cheese mix and 1⁄2 cup shredded parmesan cheese to the top.
•Bake for an additional 5-10 mins
