I love garlic bread, it is the one thing that I haven't let myself indulge in properly since starting Slimming World. Sure, I have had some extra light butter and garlic on some wholemeal toast, but it just isn't the same! I have been doing some research and heard about cauliflower bread. I wondered if it would actually taste any good, so tried it out for myself. This is syn free, but only if you allow no more that 40g of extra light cheese as your HEA and it is gluten free. To put it to the ultimate test I didn't tell Nick what it was made out of. He took one bite and let out an "mmmm" and said it was delicious. The look on his face when I said it was cauliflower!
Extra Easy Syn Value:- Syn Free
Healthy Extras:- None
You will need:-
1 large Cauliflower
Egg whites from 2 large eggs
Large handful of grated cheese of your choice and extra for topping (keep in mind that 40g of extra light cheese is your healthy extra on SW)
1 tsp mixed herbs
Salt & Pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Pre heat oven to 190 degrees.
Using a blender, blitz the cauliflower until it is a rice like texture, not too much though- you don't want cauliflower mash!
Spread the mixture out on a tray and bake in the oven for 20 mins, the idea of this is to remove excess moisture.
Once cooked leave to cool and put the mix on a tea towel and ring out any excess moisture. Repeat until no water comes out.
In a bowl mix together the cauliflower, egg whites and 3/4 of the cheese. Add the herbs and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix together to form a sort of dough.
Spray some baking paper with fry light to prevent sticking. Spread out onto a lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 20 mins at the highest oven setting until golden on top.
Add the extra cheese and sprinkle the garlic on top, bake until cheese has melted.
