Equipment

  • oven

Ingredients

  • 3 cups finely riced cauliflower
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/3 cup superfine almond flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian herbs (optional) 
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (1/4 cup extra for topping if desired)
  • 6 strips cooked bacon chopped
  • 1 jalapeno de-seed and chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 8 x 4- inch loaf pan and then line with parchment paper.
  • Microwave cauliflower for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Let it cool. Then, place about a third of the batch in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze dry. Repeat with remaining cauliflower, working in batches. This is a must for the bread not to get too soft!
  • Add egg whites to a mixing bowl. Beat at high speed until stiff peaks form. Reserve. In a large bowl, mix eggs yolks, oil, almond flour, baking powder, salt, and herbs until a smooth paste forms. Stir in the cauliflower, cheese, bacon, and jalapeno until homogeneous. 
  • Add about 1/3 of the egg whites to the paste. Use a spatula to fold in the egg whites. Repeat process with the remaining egg whites. Make sure NOT to beat the egg whites because that will cause the bread not to properly rise.
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If desired, about 10 minutes before removing bread from the oven, pour 1/4 cup shredded cheddar on top and let it melt and lightly brown. Remove from the oven and let cool before slicing. 

Recipe Notes

  • The cauliflower for this recipe has to be finer than in a cauliflower rice dish.
  • The 3 cups of cauliflower has to be measured after ricing the cauliflower. 
  • For a paleo version, use a paleo-friendly baking powder, or replace 1 tbsp of commercial baking powder for a mixture of 1 tsp baking soda and 2 tsp cream of tartar.
  • For a Whole30 version, skip the cheese. For a vegetarian version, skip the bacon.
  • Store cauliflower bread covered in the fridge for up to 5 days. Freeze for up to a month. Thaw in the fridge.
