Baked Cauliflower cutlets

You might think that this a really nice and crispy chicken pieces, baked in breadcrumbs and spices? :)) Yeah, it looks like but this is even better than chicken! I always liked cauliflower, even when I was a kid, it was one of my favorite vegetables. Weird, huh?! I loved when my mom fried it until crispy and then seasoned with salt, pepper and some paprika. Yam! It was one of my favorite snack.

I probably wouldn’t eat it now because it’s kinda greasy, unhealthy.. and you know.. I would prefer to cook it in the oven with minimum oil rather then fry it.

I was working with some new brand, called Flavis.  Flavis is a line of medical foods created by Dr. Schär, designed for those with Chronic Kidney Disease and Inherited Metabolic Disorders. And they created delicious and convenient food for people following a low-protein diet. This product is absolutely delicious.

I created the recipe of this tasty cauliflower cutlets for them and it turned out really delicious! Even my hub, who is not a big fan of cauliflower, ate a lot! :))

It’s very crispy from the outside and so tender from the inside. You gonna love this recipe a lot, because it’s heathy, delicious and easy to make!

Put breadsticks into bag or blender and crush until breadsticks turn into breadcrumbs (course or fine based on preference). Put crumbs into a medium bowl and mix in parsley, crushed garlic, oregano, and pepper. 
To Make the Cutlets:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Place egg whites in a medium bowl and add olive oil. Dip cauliflower into the egg whites to coat. Place coated cauliflower into the breadcrumbs and roll around until cauliflower is even coated.
  2. Put cauliflower onto the baking sheet, and into the preheated oven. Roast for 30-35 minutes (or until golden brown), turning cauliflower over occasionally. Add lemon to cauliflower to taste if desired. Transfer cauliflower onto plate and enjoy!
