Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Low-carb cheesy breadsticks... need I say more???? This isn't the HEALTHIEST recipe, but this is a hack to make cheesy bread just a little bit healthier. I make my own cauliflower bread, BUT Trader Joe's is selling a cauliflower pizza crust now and it is pretty damn good (and also pretty cheap!)

Ingredients:

1 bag of cauliflower rice

2 eggs

2 cloves of garlic - minced

1/2 tsp. of dried oregano

3 cups of shredded mozzarella 

1/2 cup of grated parmesan

2 tsp. of chopped parsley

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Pinch of crushed red peppers

Marinara - for dipping

 

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 425 

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper 

3. In a large bowl, mix - cauliflower, eggs, garlic, oregano, 1 cup of mozzarella, parmesan, salt & pepper

4. Transfer cauliflower "dough" to baking sheet and pat into a crust

5. Bake 25 minutes 

6. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella, parsley, crushed red pepper and bake 5 to 10 more minutes until cheese is completely melted

Cooking at the Campsite

COOKING AT THE CAMPSITE

I thought I’d make a post for my camper friends, people planning on Festival camping, and anyone else who may have just the bare minimum to cook with!


The Essentials.

Cooler with ice

Some type of burner / camp stove

One medium-large sized pan

One small pot

One sharp Knife

One Serving Spoon

One spatula

Pot Grabber

Mini olive oil

Salt & Pepper

Ziploc bags

Foil

Paper plates

Plastic Utensils

Napkins


Prep.

Here’s a list of the items you should make/chop/dice AND FREEZE before you leave:

Onion – diced

Broccoli – chopped

Carrots – chopped

Bell pepper – sliced

A few hard-boiled eggs for snacks

Muesli ( www.anikacapozza.com/eat/muesli )

Quinoa

Campfire Burritos – Here’s a good recipe to make beforehand: http://www.tasteandtellblog.com/breakfast-burritos-campfire-style/

Eggs – if you’re worried about your eggs breaking… crack them, whisk them, and store in Ziploc bags. This makes for easy scrambled eggs, too!


Meal Ideas.

Oatmeal

Dry cereal/granola

Breakfast/Protein Bars (I LOVE GoMacro)

Three-egg Veggie Scramble (Recipe is in my e-book)

Muesli (PREP. Here’s the recipe: www.anikacapozza.com/eat/muesli)

Whole-wheat bread with Almond butter & Jelly

Directions:

1.     In a medium-large sized pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat

2.     Add cooked sausage and cook for 2 minutes

3.     Add all veggies and quinoa and cook until heated through
