Some recipes that replace carbs with cauliflower work, and some don't. These Cauliflower Breadsticks definitely work and I can't wait for you to try them.
Cauliflower Breadsticks | Keto Breadsticks
These Cauliflower Breadsticks are infused with a ton of flavor from the Italian spices and the cheese and garlic. They're a perfect side dish pairing for a Keto Italian meal. These are breadsticks you don't have to feel guilty eating, and they're really very good.
What Makes your Cauliflower Breadsticks | Keto Breadsticks so different from the other recipes out there?
Everyone and their cat has recipes for cauliflower breadsticks. Perhaps not that many cats have gotten into the cauliflower game, but their owners certainly have.
So does the world really need yet ANOTHER cauliflower breadsticks recipe?
Well, some of the Cauliflower Breadsticks recipes I've seen end up leaving the keto breadsticks soft. I wanted a cauliflower breadstick that could stand up to dipping into a hearty marinara sauce, so I made sure these were thin and crispy. The texture really is similar to bread!
But the bigger issue is that I found way too many recipes that ask you to pre-cook the cauliflower.
I'm sorry, but no. Just no. I can't cook things twice and let's face it-- it's cauliflower. Riced. Why does it need to cook twice??
I'm happy to tell you, it does not. Cauliflower cooks so fast, it's redundant to pre-cook it.
This recipe doesn't ask you to pre-cook and I assure you, the keto breadsticks from this recipe taste. Just. Fine.
How Many Carbs in Cauliflower Breadsticks?
In this recipe, there are 5 net carbs per 2 cauliflower breadsticks. I know that might sound on the higher side for a side dish, but I promise you that they're worth working into your macros for the day.
Can You Freeze Cauliflower Breadsticks?
I know when I get a craving for breadsticks, I want them RIGHT THEN. So sometimes I like to make extras of this Keto breadsticks recipe.
To freeze them for easy reheating, wrap in either aluminum foil or place in a freezer-safe baggie in a single layer. Then when you're ready to reheat, simply pop them back in the oven at 350 for a couple of minutes until they're warm and crispy.
Are Cauliflower Breadsticks Good For You?
Well, yes and no. These keto breadsticks have lots of cheese, which if you are dairy-free doesn't make for a good fit. However, cheese is high in fat and makes for a great option to hold off the hunger longer. Plus--veggies. I know I'm always looking for a way to incorporate more vegetables into my diet.
So while these may not be your stereotypical health food, they're certainly a better option than a traditional breadstick.
