  • 1.5 cups grated cauliflower approximately 1/2 large cauliflower head
  • 1 tsp minced garlic 2 cloves
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 3 large egg whites
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 basil leaves chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a baking rack on top. Spray the rack with nonstick cooking spray.
  • While the oven is preheating, start by prepping the cauliflower. Cut the head in half and then into small florets, removing stems and leaves.
  • Toss the small florets into a food processor and process until the cauliflower reaches a rice/mashed potato look. It should be processed fine. The finer it is - the better.
  • Scoop the cauliflower into a cheesecloth, twist up the ends to close, and squeeze as much of the natural water out that you can.
  • Place the processed cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Once cooked, add the remaining ingredients and stir well to thoroughly combine.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop a heaping spoonful of the mixture out and roll into a ball. Make sure the mixture is cool enough to handle! Place each bite evenly apart on the prepared racks and bake for 20-23 minutes.
  • At 15 minutes, remove the sheet from the oven and rotate the bites. Place the sheet back into the oven and allow to bake for 8-10 more minutes.
  • Remove and serve with your favorite dipping sauce, such as tomato sauce, marinara, or a cheese sauce!
