Cauliflower “Bread”sticks

  • Servings : 5
  • Prep Time : 0m
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 0m


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon of basil
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

You can either put the whole head of cauliflower in a microwave safe dish and put in the microwave for 10 min. Then remove and put in a food processor until smooth OR you can put the cauliflower in the food processor first until you get a rice consistency and then put in a microwave safe dish and put in the microwave for 10 min.

Step 2

Let the cauliflower cool slightly then place in the refrigerator until cooled completely.

Step 3

Once cooled, mix the rest of the ingredients in the cauliflower.

Step 4

Grease a cookie sheet and place cauliflower on it. Use your hands and pat down cauliflower until it is about 1/2 in thick. Place in an oven set for 425 degrees for about 25 min or until slightly brown.

Step 5

Remove from oven and turn to broil at 500. Cut your cauliflower in the desired sticks you want and flip over. Place back in the oven until both sides are brown and desired crispness:) Enjoy! They are delicious!

    I really love this! And I will have fun playing/altering the recipe. :-)

    I tried these tonight and they didn’t turn out. Mine were soggy and stuck to the pan horribly. Can someone tell me what I did wrong? They sounded so delicious! :(

    Wow, these look good and they don’t even have cheese in the ingredients. I’d add it. hehe

    Mine were soggy as well …not sure how they look so crispy in the photo – I tried but they never crisped up.

    Mine tasted great, and weren’t soggy, but didnt turnout as nice as the photo. next time I will maybe spread them even thinner.

    You have to flip them over. use another cookie sheet lined with parchment paper put on top of the one that was cooking flip them over and cook more so both sides get cooked. they will get crispy that way

    Tried them but wasn’t a fan… Rediscovered my love for cauliflower rice, though.

    What do you grease the pan with? Butter? Spray?

    I didn’t keep a close enough eye on it in the 25 mins it was burnt and stuck to the pan…what I did scrape off tasted soggy.
    I will try it again though because I definitely saw the potential

    Hello! We have family members interested but wonder about vegetarian options… We’re talking ethical vegetarians (and one pescetarian)–are there recipes and ways we could explore paleo…? Thanks so much! :)

    Can it be done without eggs? :/
    Can egg replacer be used?

    Mine came out soggy too so I ended up just mashing them all together in a bowl and served it as stuffing. Pretty good!

    I’ve read a few different versions of this. I’ll be trying it today. But, yes, from what I’ve read egg substitue may be used and for the person that they stuck to the pan, try parchment papper, that’s how I’m going to do it. One piece on the cookie sheet and then half-way through cooking time, place another sheet of parchment paper on top and flip it. We’ll see if it works.

    After baking for 25 min they were still soft. Flipped them over and half was stuck to the parchment paper. Couldn’t cut bc they were already broken. Put back in to broil hope they get crispy. Are you suppose to grease the parchment paper or should I have left them in longer before flipping?

    Mine came out gross and spicyyy

    Is there a way to make these but not use the microwave?

  17. posted by Lisa on April 3, 2013

    Mine were crispy on the bottom and when I flipped them over to broil they would have burned within 1 minute if I hadn’t been watching. Next time I will turn on the broiler without flipping them – since that side was not crisp. Good flavor though, I’d been looking for a recipe like this without cheese.

    I made these but they turned out really soggy. I flipped them over a couple of times and broiled for a while, but they never crisped up. What did I do wrong?

    For those who had issues with their bread being too soggy, try placing the ground cauliflower in some kind of strainer bag, (such as cheesecloth perhaps), and squeeze every last bit of moisture out of it. (I used paper towels last time, but had to be careful to ensure it didn’t explode all over the kitchen!) We make a cauliflower “pizza dough”, and have found this to be key in keeping the crust from getting soggy. Good luck!

    These are gross, taste nothing like bread sticks. Unless you have been on a starvation diet for a very long time and want to eat anything.

    These didn’t turn out for me either. Soft, thin, never crisped, and odd spicy flavor. I won’t make again. Too bad. I was looking forward to them.

    Soggy, but tasted ok. Next time I’ll squeeze out the moisture first. I put goat Gouda on top- yum

    so disappointed! i followed the recipe exactly and it did NOT turn out. :( it smelled delicious, but not edible!

    Wish I would have read the reviews before making. Mine were a soggy mess too! I think the recipe is missing something because I followed it to the letter. One thing I noticed is, it calls for a tablespoon of Oregano, I believe that needs to be clarified to Oregano Leaves, not the ground oregano because I assumed it was the powder and mine had way too much oregano and the color was a little greener than the picture. Wasted a whole head of cauliflower because this wound up in the trash. Good luck trying this one…..

    SUCCESS! Glad I read the comments before trying this recipe. Here is what to change from the original instructions:
    After the cauliflower is cooked and cooled, dump it into a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out the water. I spent a couple minutes doing this, don’t be too worried about getting it 100% dry.
    Use Oregano leaves, not ground oregano.
    Use parchment paper to line your baking sheet. No need to grease the paper.
    Cook for less time than it says.
    I went to flip it over to broil it like the instructions say, and the other side was nicely browned already.
    1/2 of it is already eaten by my 9 year old, we used spaghetti sauce for dipping.
