Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly coat it with cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, whole wheat breadcrumbs, minced garlic, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the cauliflower coating.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten.
  4. Dip each cauliflower floret into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off, and then coat it with the Parmesan mixture. Place the coated floret on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat this process for all the florets.
  5. Lightly spray the coated florets with cooking spray. This will help them turn golden and crispy while baking.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cauliflower bites are tender and the coating is golden brown and crisp.
  7. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. These cauliflower bites are best enjoyed fresh and warm.
