Cauliflower Chedder Biscuits

The awesome superfood, cauliflower is in season right now! Even though they can be grown year round, they are best from September to November. Cauliflower is a great source of vitamin C (half a cup is about 40 percent of your daily need), vitamin K, folic acid, and vitamin B6. It is also very low in calories, fat, and carbohydrates. I love cauliflower because there is so much you can do with it!

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Step 1:  Make Mashed Cauliflower.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Steam cauliflower for about 10-15 minutes or until very tender, then transfer to a food processor.  Add minced garlic and pulse several times until smooth and creamy.

Transfer mashed cauliflower into a large mixing bowl.  Add in two whole eggs, cheddar cheese, nonfat Greek yogurt, pepper and mix together.  In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.  Then slowly fold the egg whites into the cauliflower mixture.

Coat a mini muffin pan with cooking spray  (I made large and small).  Then fill the cups to the top with the cauliflower mixture.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from the pan, and set on a cooling rack.
