New Recipe: Delicious baked cauliflower and cheddar bites

The great thing about this finger food recipe is that you need only three ingredients and next-to-no time to whip it up. Crispy, cheesy, healthy and delicious, these bites will be devoured just as quickly and easily…

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp oregano (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190C. Grease a 24-case mini-muffin tin with oil (or use a 12-case muffin tin if you want bigger bites).
  2. Blanch your cauliflower by placing in a pot of rapidly boiling water. Cook for 5 minutes, then drain and cool. (Alternatively, you can also do this in a microwave by placing the cauliflower florets in a microwave-safe bowl and covering with cling film. Microwave on medium heat for 8 minutes or until your cauliflower is tender.)
  3. Place cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until it resembles rice. Remove from the processor and drain excess water as best you can.
  4. Put cauliflower in a large bowl. Add cheese and egg. If you’re adding oregano and garlic then pop them in the bowl along with some salt and pepper to taste. Mix with a spoon until combined.
  5. Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture into each muffin case (more if you’re using the bigger muffin tin).
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden and the middle is no longer soft.
  7. Remove from the oven to cool, then serve with your favourite dipping sauce (I used sweet chilli and sour cream, but good ol’ tomato sauce will suffice too!)
