Cauliflower Everything Bagels



So, I’ve become obsessed with cauliflower recently.  I mean, I might as well start growing it.  It’s gotten to the point where people are tagging me on Facebook in cauliflower recipes…  I’m not mad about it.

I found this recipe on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen, and just had to try it out.  I have to say – if you don’t like cauliflower, you may not love these, but they are a GREAT sub for carbs!!  And they are the perfect little fix when you need a bagel – just maybe lay off the cream cheese. 🙂  My suggestion is to really cook these through – the more you bake them, the better they get.  I also ate them the next few days by putting my stove on broil and throwing one on the rack to brown and warm it up.  YUM!

(I put her original recipe below and what I used instead in parentheses.)

  • 1 head cauliflower, riced (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp organic corn meal (I used almond meal)
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt
“Everything” Topping
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp dried minced garlic (I used more garlic powder for this instead)
  • 1 tbsp dried minced onion (I didn’t have this so I just left it out)
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. In a food processor, or using a hand grater, pulse/grate cauliflower until rice consistency
  3. In a bowl combine eggs, cauliflower rice, almond flour, coconut flour, corn meal, garlic powder, and salt
  4. In a separate bowl combine “everything” topping ingredients
  5. Lay parchment paper on a baking sheet
  6. Make even sized balls and lay onto parchment paper.
  7. To make a few of them look like bagels – I punched a hole lightly in the middle with the end of a wooden spoon.  🙂
  8. Sprinkle “everything” topping and slightly press them into the top
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bread-like consistency (it might be longer depending on the size you make)
  10. Optional: Broil on high for 3-5 minutes after baking
  11. Optional: For extra crisp, remove from baking sheet and do the broiling step with the buns directly on the oven rack
  12. Remove from baking sheet and let cool directly on a cooling rack
  13. Serve with your favorite sandwich ingredients

    1. Yes Steven! It was great – I mean, you can def taste the cauliflower, but a good sub for carbs and bagels if you’re needing it!
