This Cauliflower Breadsticks Recipe is perfect to cozy up with for a movie night in. It pairs perfectly with marinara sauce and ranch.

Cauliflower breadsticks is a keto recipe that, in my opinion, takes its keto version of inspiration from garlic bread and normal breadsticks. Dressings are an essential aspect when it comes to pairing complementary flavors with the focal point of the meal. These keto cauliflower breadsticks accommodate a variety of sauces such as ranch, marinara, and even vodka sauce. The culmination of all the ingredients results in a savory and satisfying experience. While the diverse ingredients make for a taste that never gets boring, what helps keep this recipe so easy to recycle in your weekly meals is not only the sauces it can be paired with but also the ways you can eat it.

Cauliflower breadsticks can be eaten as a main course for lunch or dinner. It can also be used as an everyday snack or an appetizer for a multiple course meal. It can be reheated via microwave or oven. Either way you choose to reheat it, no flavor is lost. Rather the opposite can be found true, as the flavors are further absorbed into the breadsticks.

Background:

When first trying this recipe I had an instant flashback to the first time I tried cheesy breadsticks from Domino’s. The multitude of similarities I experienced assured me I was having a deja vu moment, and in the best way possible. After trying the cauliflower breadsticks it assured me there was no need for skepticism. The pure aroma is enough to leave anyone salivating. The intelligent combination of basil with garlic complemented by two different types of cheeses and an assortment of seasonings will leave you in a whirlwind, marveling at the fact that what you are eating is so low-carb.

After being cooked, the breadsticks rise in a similar manner to bread. This allows the already alluring experience to further engage you with the recipe’s cloud-like texture. While each bite leaves you wanting more, this keto recipe allows you to not feel guilty when indulging in that almost innate desire. 

While this more than delightful concoction includes an array of ingredients the rainbow of flavor is mirrored in the taste. Furthermore, even though there are a variety of ingredients involved in this too good to be true food, there is no complexity involved. If you didn’t think the recipe could get better due to the fact that it has a supernaturally pleasant taste and requires only simple steps to be made, well a surprise is coming your way. It surpasses its already high standing with its short cook time. In only 15 short minutes the enticing aroma of the cauliflower breadsticks will be wafting through the air, ready to be eaten. This recipe is a great snack to share with friends, although, after the first bite, you won’t want to.
