These cauliflower bites are crispy, tender, salty, and ridiculously addictive! The low carb breading really locks in all the flavor, and gives the cauliflower a fantastic texture.

The key to the “breading” is seasoned pork rind crumbs – which are a fantastic zero carb alternative to breadcrumbs and seriously convenient! I've used Pork King Good brand in this recipe (Original flavor – but any of the others would work), but I also really like Pork Panko from Bacon's Heir which you can buy on Amazon. 

Of course, you can always make your own. For this recipe you'll need about two ounces of pork rinds. Crush them by whizzing them up in a food processor or by placing them in a sealable baggie and using a meat tenderizer or similar to get them as fine as possible.

How to Make Keto Garlic Cauliflower Bites

Remove the leaves and stalk from a medium head of cauliflower (mine was about 1lb after I had done this) and cut the rest into florets of roughly equal size.

Place them in a large bowl and set aside. Melt some butter in the microwave and mix it with some minced garlic (garlic paste would work well too).

Add the cauliflower florets to the butter and turn to coat. In a second smaller bowl, mix together some finely grated Parmesan and the seasoned pork rinds. You might also like to add some black pepper but you shouldn't need to add any salt.

Place individual florets into the Parmesan mixture, and turn them over until coated.

Roast in a preheated oven for 25 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and the coating is golden brown. Turn the florets over half way through the cooking time.

Just dip, and enjoy! This recipe makes about four servings (hard to be exact how many cauliflower bites that is though!).
