These Low Carb Breadsticks Will Have You Saying, “Pass The Bread” Without The Guilt

If you’ve ever felt the need to skip the breadsticks at dinner because you were watching your carbs, well, you don’t have to miss out entirely. No matter how much bread you allow into your diet, this low-carb version of cauliflower breadsticks should be served with soup, pizza or anytime you’d normally have bread. Because they’re just that good.

These cheesy fake breadsticks are much more healthy than the alternative, but they’re just as tasty. Real Housemoms details a recipe in which cheese, garlic and herbs top cauliflower that’s been put through the food processor and formed into flat rectangles.

I’m sure you’ve heard of making cauliflower pizza crust and more, and in the case of this recipe, having your cauliflower in the least vegetable-like way possible really is easier said than done.

You see, once you’ve cut the cauliflower into florets, you place them into the food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and rice-like. Then, you mix the cauliflower with an egg and cheeses and flatten it onto a baking pan to go into the oven for just a few minutes.
