Need a healthy appetizer to serve up at your next dinner party? Or, maybe you’re tired of the same old snacks? Cooking Light transforms traditional biscuits with…cauliflower! They’re entirely gluten-free, only 25 calories per biscuit and bursting with garlicky-cheddar flavor.
Cheesy Cauliflower Biscuits
- 1 medium (590 grams) cauliflower head, leaves removed
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 large (50 grams, each) eggs
- 2 large (30 grams, each) egg whites
- 1/3 cup (95 grams) nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup (60 grams) cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Steam cauliflower for about 10-12 minutes or until very tender, then transfer to a food processor. Add minced garlic and pulse several times until smooth and creamy.
Transfer mashed cauliflower into a large mixing bowl. Add in two whole eggs, cheddar cheese, nonfat Greek yogurt, salt and pepper and mix together.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Then, slowly fold the egg whites into the cauliflower mixture.
Coat a mini muffin pan with cooking spray of your choice. Then fill the cups to the top with the cauliflower mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove from the pan, and set on a cooling rack.
