Cauliflower Bite seasoned with nutritional yeast making them Dairy Free, but still DELICIOUS!!

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 1x


  • 1 (16oz) bag of Frozen Cauliflower Rice
  • 3 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 4 tablespoons Almond Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chili Powder


  1. Allow my Cauliflower rice to defrost on the counter in a strainer in a bowl.  Once defrosted, drain out the excess water; there is a lot.  You can use a nut bag, cheesecloths, sturdy paper towels, or a dish towel.  You want to get out as much water as possible. Otherwise, your bites might end up as crumbles.
  2. After you get out the annoying excess water, put the Cauliflower Rice and remaining ingredients into a bowl.  Mix the ingredients, making sure everything is evenly incorporated
  3. Once mixed, take a ¼ cup of the mixture, form it into a ball, and flatten slightly (to about ¾ inch thick)
  4. Place the bites onto a parchment lined sheet pan
  5. Bake for 20 minutes at 350°F flip after 10 minutes
