Cauliflower Biscuits

I am on a cauliflower kick this week – Thai cauliflower rice and cauliflower biscuits.

I just want to clarify something – I’m fully aware that these are not real biscuits. And so isn’t cauliflower pizza crust recipe really a pizza and cauliflower breadsticks aren’t actual breadsticks.

They don’t have a light airy fluffy texture but rather more of vegetable muffins or big cauliflower tots. They did resemble biscuits in a sense though and we all loved them. It was a nice change in our so beaten up menu. I wouldn’t make them often or wouldn’t call them super healthy because they contain a fair amount of cheese and eggs.

How to Make Cauliflower Biscuits

cauliflower florets

I bought this cauliflower at the farmer’s market. It had a purple undertone to it, which was invisible after processing. Separate into florets.

cauliflower rice in food processor

In a food processor, add cauliflower in batches and process until fine crumbs. Smaller than in my photos, it will produce softer and fluffier cauliflower biscuits. In the last batch, add garlic.

Saute cauliflower for 5 – 7 minutes or until a bit golden.

Divide mixture evenly among openings of a muffin tin and top with remaining 3 tbsp cheese. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool. That’s it.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs cauliflower separated into florets
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 2 eggs or 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp any firm cheese shredded & tightly packed (I used Pepper Jack)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper ground
  • 2-3 tbsp green onion sprigs finely chopped
  • Cooking spray I use Misto

Instructions

  • In a food processor, add cauliflower in batches and process until fine crumbs. Smaller than in my photos. In the last batch, add garlic. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Preheat non-stick skillet on medium - high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add cauliflower and cook for 5 - 7 minutes or until a bit golden, stirring frequently and watching closely not to burn.
  • In the meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Add cornstarch and whisk until dissolved. Add pre-cooked cauliflower along with cheese (except 3 tbsp), salt, pepper and green onions; mix well.
  • Line muffin tin with liners or use silicone muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray. Divide mixture evenly among openings and top with remaining 3 tbsp cheese. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool a bit and serve hot or cold (I like).

Store: Keep refrigerated in a glass airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
