Cauliflower Bites (Keto, Vegetarian)

  • Author: Ingrid DeHart
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 16 mini bites 1x


These cauliflower bites are deliciously magical. They’re crispy, moist and satisfying.




  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Rice the cauliflower using a grater or food processor to make rice size pieces.
  • Once the cauliflower is riced, mix with salt. Let sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Put 16 unbleached mini muffin liners into mini muffin tin* or grease with coconut oil.
  • Shred the cheese on a plate and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the egg with curry powder and add the cheese.
  • Put the cauliflower into a kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess water. Add to the egg/cheese mixture and stir.
  • Sprinkle with almond flour and tapioca flour. Mix to combine evenly (it will be crumbly).
  • Use a heaping tablespoon or a small cookie scoop to fill 16 mini muffin cups.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until they begin to get golden.
  • Eat warm or at room temperature.
  • Store in refrigerator for 2 days, heat or let sit to return to room temperature.


For nut free use gluten free fine cornmeal.

If you don’t have a mini muffin tin, you can put the mini muffin liners onto a sheet pan and fill them. They will hold together just fine.
