  • 2 cups cooked and cooled cauliflower florets, pureed (You will need about half a head of cauliflower. I steamed mine for 15 minutes while my quinoa was cooking. You can make this part days in advance or use leftover cauliflower from dinner)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp. Marinara sauce (use our Healthy Marinara Recipe)

  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • More Marinara sauce (for dipping)
  • Optional freshly grated Parmesan cheese and/or basil for garnish

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Gently roll about 1-inch balls and set them in a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. You can garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and basil if you wish and use our Health Marinara Sauce for dipping!

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Make a Menu”

Writing down what you want to eat for the week ensures that you have the ingredients on hand when it comes to mealtime. It also relieves that stress of wondering what in the world you’re going to eat for dinner. Some of us are great at just throwing together ingredients and making a tasty meal, but others do better with the reassurance and guidance of a recipe. With time, you’ll get better at cooking without a recipe, but until then, use recipes and menus to take the burden off of deciding what to cook last minute.
