Cheesy Cauliflower & Broccoli ‘Faux’Caccia

Perfect ‘faux’ the kids! ย Hehe, see what I did there…?

Boys are all about the superheroes… Capes and spiderwebs, muscles and fancy mobiles.
Oh how this household is in need of a bit of glitter and sparkles and princess tiaras…
{I’ll just pretend I’M the princess around here, because THAT shop is closed ๐Ÿ˜‰ }

Before you start thinking I’ve gone completely nutters, let me present you with a superhero-worthy green Hulk-a-licious ‘faux’caccia:

Cauliflower & Broccoli 'Faux'Caccia {Low Carb} - square

Just FYI – any green food is totally what The Incredible Hulk prefers to eat ๐Ÿ˜‰ and don’t forget that! {You’re welcome}

This is quite similar to some of the pizza base recipes I’ve posted, except that it’s thicker and I’ve included broccoli. {How sneaky of me…}

You can cut these into ‘bread sticks’ for handy snacks or serve it with any of your favourite toppings as a delicious low carb ‘faux’caccia.

You will need:

1 head of cauliflower
1 head of broccoli
2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 eggs
3 tbs psyllium husk
1 tsp salt
Pinch of white pepper

Steam and drain the cauliflower & broccoli.
Puree in a blender and squeeze out all the excess water by wringing it in a clean dish towel.

Mix all these ingredients together and spread onto a lined baking sheet.

Bake at 180C for 30 minutes.

This also works really well for lunch boxes and road trips!

I like to add some lettuce, crispy bacon and cream cheese – you can even make it into a sandwich.

I’ll leave you with this image of me {Princess – or rather Queen Heidi} hard at work on a chilly winter’s day:
