KN (Original): Cheesy Cauliflower Bites

When the carbs you need should come from veggies, you kinda gotta stay creative. How many times can you eat steamed veggies? Blech! When changing an entire lifestyle, it is important to have it work for you. Pinterest is my best friend, hands down! And by experimenting with recipes and your own taste buds, you find out the foodie in you!

These Cheesy Cauliflower Bites are nummy like rice cakes, only, no rice! Are you ready for the recipe?

INGREDIENTS:

12 servings

Cals 102.2g| Net Carbs 2.1g| Fat 8g| Protein 5.1g|

~* Small head of cauliflower (or half a big one)

~* 1 1/2 aged white cheddar cheese, grated

~* 1/8 cup of Italian salad dressing

~* 1 large egg

HOW TO MAKE IT:

I have baked these in the oven before (400 degrees for 20 minutes). But then I got an air fryer for Christmas, and it is even yummier! A Nice crust and soft gooey insides.

Shred the small head of cauliflower in the food processor. I have done this in a blender before, or by hand. The food processor is a good kitchen tool to have, in my opinion. Bought mine on amazon for $20. Put the riced cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cook it for 2 minutes, This dries and softens the cauliflower.

Grate the 1 1/2 aged white cheddar cheese. I like the bigger, chunkier side. The reason we always try to grate our own cheese instead of buying the shredded kind is because they add starches to the pre packaged cheese. Ketosis is important to me, so this is my reason! Add one large egg and 1/8 cup of Italian dressing.

Now you are ready to get your hands dirty to form the balls of cheesy cauliflower bites. When I ball them up, I squeeze any excess liquids from it and put them into the air fryer basket.
