Cauliflower bread | Low Carb Bread #9

Posted on

In case you are like me and LOVE cauliflower (and bread), this cauliflower bread is made for us! 🤗

It’s super delicate, light and fluffy, with only 3 grams of net carbs per slice, an awesome low carb bread option!

As I said above, this is a delicate bread, so I highly recommend you to toast it before serving or using as sandwich bread. Toasting will help to keep its shape.

Ingredients
  • 4 cups (575 grams) of cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 5 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
Directions
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  2. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and cover it with a baking sheet. I’m using a 20 cm one here.
  3. Next, add in the batter making the surface even.
  4. We will bake it in two stages, first bake it for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 190C (374F). ⏰
  5. Then reduce the temperature to 180C (356F) and bake for more 50 minutes ⏰, or until risen, golden and cooked through.
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉 This is a very delicate bread so let it cool in the pan before removing from it.
    I also suggest toasting your slice before eating for the best taste and texture.

Loved this recipe? I have also published several other recipes of bread and many other recipes using cauliflower as the main ingredient.

Brazilian Cheese Puffs (Gluten free) | aka Brazilian Cheese Bread

Posted on

Let’s learn a classic Brazilian recipe today, Brazilian Cheese Puffs (or you can also say Cheese Breads)!

These little cheesy balls are called pão de queijo (pronunciation here) and are a typical snack served for breakfast or teatime in Brazil. 🇧🇷

To keep all its cheesiness and delight your family and guests, serve them fresh from the oven. You can also freeze them (after baked) and just pop in the oven for 15 minutes before serving.

Just remember they are highly addictive and you won’t be able to eat just one! 😜

Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup of olive oil (or coconut oil)
  • ⅔ cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 and ½ cups of tapioca flour (cassava)
Directions
  1. In a blender add olive oil, milk, egg, salt, and parmesan cheese. Then mix until well combined.
  2. Once combined, add the tapioca flour in three steps (½ cup each) until all of the tapioca flour has been added.
  3. Mix well on high, scraping down the sides of the blender so that everything is nicely blended.
  4. Grease a mini muffin tin and pour the batter in, leaving some space unfilled as they will raise considerably.
  5. Bake them at 200C (400F) for 20 minutes or until they are light golden brown.
  6. It’s done! 🎉

Did you know? The brazilian cuisine has a variety of dishes and snacks; some of them very popular in a particular region of the country, while completely uncommon in other parts.
Cheese Puffs, for example, are more frequently found in the Eastern Central area of the country, mainly in the state of Minas Gerais and its capital, Belo Horizonte.
