Cauliflower Pate

My cauliflower pate supposed to be cauliflower bread. At least that’s what original recipe said. I was very excited to try this innovative way of making bread with cauliflower. The result is very nice and tasty but I wouldn’t call it bread. It soft inside and it doesn’t resemble bread texture. It looks more like a pate and I would serve it as a side dish with meats or salads. If you would like to add some more flavour to the pate I think you can add some fried onions or mushrooms. Also dried tomatoes would taste great.

 
Ingredients (make 20 slices):
400g fresh cauliflower
2 eggs + 1 egg white
120g ground almond
4 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. bicarbonate soda
Juice from ¼ lemon
1 tsp. salt
Black pepper to your taste
1 tbsp. green pesto
 

Preparation:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Blend cauliflower together with eggs and egg white in a food processor until you have smooth mixture. Transfer to a big bowl.
  3. Add ground almond, olive oil, salt, pepper, baking powder, soda and lemon and mix everything well.
  4. Line small (20 cm long) rectangular form with baking paper and transfer the mixture into it.
  5. Spread pesto on the top. You may slightly swirl it with knife so the pesto get inside the pate.
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes until nice browned on top and the sides.
  7. Let the pate to cool down before slicing.



Enjoy J
