In the pursuit of health-conscious culinary delights, we present a guilt-free twist on the classic garlic bread – a Weight Watchers-friendly Cheesy Garlic “Bread” crafted with wholesome ingredients. This recipe transforms the humble cauliflower into a flavorful canvas, offering a low-carb alternative that doesn’t compromise on taste or satisfaction.

Ingredients for a Healthier Indulgence:

The star of this recipe is the versatile cauliflower, finely processed to mimic rice and then masterfully combined with two large eggs, a cup of reduced-fat shredded mozzarella, and a quarter cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Accentuating the flavors are two cloves of minced garlic, a teaspoon each of dried oregano and parsley, and a dash of salt and pepper for that perfect balance.

Step-by-Step Culinary Symphony:

  1. Cauliflower Transformation: Begin by pulsing a large cauliflower head into rice-sized granules, then microwave for 4-5 minutes until tender. A crucial step follows: squeeze out excess moisture using a kitchen towel to ensure the “bread” holds its shape.
  2. Cheese-infused Harmony: In a mixing bowl, unite the cauliflower rice with eggs, mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper. This amalgamation forms the heart of our guilt-free creation.
  3. Baking Brilliance: Spread the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, shaping it into a tantalizing oval or rectangular form, approximately half an inch thick. Bake at 425°F (220°C) for 25-30 minutes, allowing the edges to turn a delightful golden brown.
  4. Optional Finishing Touch: For an extra crisp, golden-brown crust, consider a brief broil under high heat for 1-2 minutes, adding an enticing texture to your creation.

The Culinary Delight Unveiled:

As the Cheesy Garlic “Bread” emerges from the oven, a symphony of savory

flavors and fragrances fills the kitchen. The golden-brown edges promise a satisfying crunch, while the cheesy aroma captivates your senses.
