This baked cauliflower fries recipe by Food Wishes on YouTube is a low-carb snack and healthy. There are many keto-friendly or recipes that use cauliflower as a carb substitute, so I think this is an interesting way to make fries. They would be a great midday snack or appetizer before a meal during dinner. Cauliflower can be tricky to make because it can be soggy if you’re trying to make it into something crispy. The process can be tedious, but if done right, it’s worth it. The worst that can happen from this recipe would be soft and not crispy fries.
- 2 head cauliflower (about 3 1/2 cups of cooked, squeezed-dry cauliflower)
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 2 large eggs
- about 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup packed finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
- 4 cloves peeled garlic, crushed fine
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- more cheese to dust top
First, break down the cauliflower into small pieces and add them to the food processor. Process them into fine pieces and transfer them to a saute pan. Cook over medium-high heat for about high heat. Cook the cauliflower into a soft puree. Let the mixture cool down before squeezing all of the water out in a towel. Continue to watch Food Wishes on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Next, once the cauliflower mixture has baked in the oven at 350 degrees for an hour, cool off completely before slicing. Add them to a baking sheet and brush with oil on top. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Overall, I wouldn’t mind trying this healthy alternative. Although it may seem like a long process, I would try it out to see if it’s worth it. I love all types of fries because I would consider myself a fry connoisseur.
