Meatless Monday | Cheesy Cauliflower Pizza Bites

This recipe makes me LOVE cauliflower more than I already do. These aren’t vegan but they sure are good.

INGREDIENTS:
1 small head of cauliflower
1 and 1/4 cups of low fat mozzarella cheese
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
small handful of fresh basil leaves sliced thinly

DIRECTIONS:
1. Shred the cauliflower in your food processor until it looks like rice – I call this “ricing”.
2. Place the rice in a bowl and microwave it for 5 minutes.
3. Squeeze all of the excess water out by placing the rice on a cheesecloth or thin piece of linen and pressing the liquid out. If you skip this, it’s not the end of the world.
4. Then mix in your dried ingredients, egg, cheese, and basil leaves. Be careful! It’s hot. Don’t do what I did in my first Cheap Clean Eats video. You can watch that disaster here. (No, seriously, watch it!)
5. Form your “dough” into little nugget sized pieces on a tray that’s been sprayed with EVOO, PAM, or coconut oil.
6. Bake at 425F for 15 min. (I actually left mine in a little longer to make sure they get a bit crunchy.)
