Recipe type: Low Carb
Cuisine: Vegetarian
Serves: 8-10
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 cup Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded pizza mozzarella
  • 12 1 inch cubes of pizza mozzarella
  • ½ cup fresh or dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 egg
  • Hot Sauce (optional)
  • Cheesecloth
  • melted butter for brushing
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Boil until tender cauliflower florets then cool
  3. With a cheesecloth add the cooled cauliflower and squeeze as much water out as you can.
  4. In a large bowl add all the ingredients minus the mozzarella cubes and mix together until combined.
  5. Using a scoop take the mixture, roll and make an indent in the middle of the ball.
  6. Add a mozzarella cube and hot sauce if desired.
  7. Roll into a tight ball and set on your Silpat non-stick baking mat set in your baking sheet. If you don't have a Silpat use parchment paper or a non-stick baking sheet.
  8. You should have enough mix to make between 8-10 balls possibly more depending on how big you roll them. Make sure the mozzarella cube is covered completely or it will melt out when baked.
  9. Before setting them in the oven brush the tops with melted butter then bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Serve with homemade dill dressing or homemade marinara sauce.
