Garlic Cauliflower Biscuits

IDKKK if you’ve seen but Elli Quark is having this amazing challenge called #EatCleanShowdown that’s like an irl Chopped episode :o. I am honored to be 1 of the 5 contestants for Round 1! The mandatory mystery ingredients that were sent to use: enoki mushrooms, fresh tamarind, orange cauliflower, salted pistachios, and lemon Elli Quark!! The theme: Brunch!!

When I think brunch I think a buffet style, luxurious selection of anything and everything, sweet, savory, all the things your heart desires. SOOO dis be mah entry. A southwestern veggie omelette, garlic cauliflower biscuits with an apple tamarind jam, and a lemon elli quark bowl topped with berries & pistachios. A brunch very much enjoyed.

This contest was such a fun challenge; it made me branch out and explore a new food (tamarind!). I had JUST been talking to my coworker the week before about where he grew up and how they always enjoyed fresh tamarind off the trees. I had been asking him how they always ate it; he said just straight, as is! And I was convinced I had to try it and get over my fear & intimidation of the pods. It was much easier than I anticipated! And SO tasty!! New favorite food. Learning is fun.

And these protein cauliflower biscuits are most certainly now a staple in my house from this point forward. Me and Jesse fought over who’d get them, and I already made 2 batches within 2 days haha.

Makes: 4 Biscuits

  • 1/2 cup raw cauliflower “riced”
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) quark (or greek yogurt)
  • 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 scoop unflavored protein powder (I used questnutrition)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Chop up a raw cauliflower head and place it in a food processor. Pulse until a “rice” texture is obtained. In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup of the cauliflower “rice” with all of the remaining ingredients. Once mixed, form into 4 dough balls and place on a sprayed baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for 15-20 mins until lightly browned on top!

I like to then slice in half and toast them after for a wee little crisp on the inside, or eat them as is! Store in the fridge.

    I made these last week and just added a couple of Tbsp of psyllium husks and 1 tbsp coconut flour as the batter seemed a bit thin. I made them in english muffin rings and they worked out great. I had a hamburger on one for supper last night. Thanks for the recipe

      Oh my goshhh. Sounds great in English muffin rings!!

      Oh! It might have been thin depending on which protein you used. The quest protein is half whey half casein, and the casein thickens it up a lot. Good fix with the psyllium.
