This Golden Garlic Bread recipe, smothered generously with Cashew Basil Pesto, is an easy appetizer that will delight and surprise dinner guests (no bread? no grains? no cheese?) No. This paleo “bread” is made from a vegetable.
What vegetable, you ask?
Cauliflower. While you can use regular cauliflower, I chose to use the heirloom yellow variety, which tastes the same, but is much more festive. Purple cauliflower would be even more fun!
It is a slightly revised take on my original, cauliflower breadsticks (which can also be used as a cauliflower pizza crust or sliced into squares to make “bread”).
I added the highly anti-inflammatory turmeric to turn it “golden” and copious amounts of garlic to make it “medicinal” (it may help you fight the flu, but also scare away your boyfriend…either make sure he eats it too, or serve it on girls night :). The nutritional yeast is optional, but recommended, for a “cheesy” flavor.
Best part? Super easy to make. You can also pre-make, and then reheat in a warm oven for a few minutes before serving.
