Cauliflower Parmesan Bites
Cauliflower Parmesan Bites! With pumpkin seed sprinkles. My friend has been raving about pumpkin seeds so I picked some up during my last trip to Trader Joe's. A 1/4 cup serving contains 15g of fat, 6 which are polyunsaturated and 5 which are monounsaturated.
Studies show that eating foods rich in monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease. Research also shows that MUFAs may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which helps control cravings and energy levels.
Evidence shows that eating foods rich in polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease.
HOW TO MAKE THIS TREAT?
I steamed the cauliflower in the microwave, dipped in almond meal, then dipped in liquid egg whites, and coated in a mixture of garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, Parmesan cheese and nutritional yeast. I cooked on the skillet with about 2 T of olive oil (another healthy fat!). Ingredients 2 1/2 cups cooked cauliflower 1/2 cup almond meal 3/4 cup liquid egg white 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese 3 T. nutritional yeast 2 t. garlic powder 2 t. onion powder 2 t. cayenne pepper 2 T. pumpkin seeds 2 T. olive oil
