Cauliflower Bites

Healthy Cauliflower Bites

In the continuing search for healthy but delicious cauliflower recipes, here are my Cauliflower Bites. They have a crunchy outside with a cheesy, herby center.

I was going to take a beautiful picture for you, but I wasn’t fast enough. People got to them first. If you go to the store to buy steel wool and mineral spirits to restore your 1907 Stanley Bailey hand Plane, the yummy bites will not be there when you get back.

These little bites are perfect for taking to a party or to offer to guests.  You can also put a little something tasty to serve on the top. Sliced tomato or avocado, a smidgen of smoked salmon, Branston Pickle, sunflower sprouts, water cress or just a little sprig of cilantro.

They can also be served as a tasty after school snack. You may also like to try my Low Calorie Crunchy Cauliflower.

this sounds like a good stuffing for mushroom caps. What do you think?

Do you think these can be eaten cold? I’m looking for toddler lunchbox ideas!

    Monica the Cavewoman - March 13, 2015

    Yes. They can be eaten cold. You could also try some warm soups in a flask. There are tons of recipes on Cavewoman. Hope to see you drop by again Teresa…

can you freeze these?

    Hi Maureen, I didn’t try but I am sure you can freeze these. There is nothing in them that doesn’t freeze well. Thanks for the comment.

Just came across your cauliflower category and I am AMAZED at how many innovative and healthy recipes you’ve come up with to use it! I’ve always been curious about using cauliflower after getting my new food processor – guess I know what I’ll be spending my Sunday doing! :)
