Shamrock Bagel Bites


Prep Notes

Ingredients

1 cup roughly chopped cauliflower

1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour (I use   Bob's Red Mill)

3/4 cup dairy-free plain unsweetened yogurt (I use Forager Project Cashewgurt Unsweetened Plain)

1 Tbs coconut oil, room temperature

2  tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

2 Tbs egg white (from one large egg)

1 tsp water

Large bunch of fresh parsley leaves

Sesame seeds

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pulse cauliflower and parsley together in a food processor until they turn green and are the consistency of coarse breadcrumbs.

Place cauliflower/parsley mixture in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Uncover and stir. Cover again and microwave for another 2 minutes.

Transfer to a fine mesh strainer. Place strainer over a large cup or bowl to allow mixture to cool and extra liquid to drain. Let cool about 10 minutes.

Using a coffee filter (or a few  paper towels), firmly press out as much of the liquid as possible.

Place the cauliflower/parsley mixture into a large bowl. Add the flour, yogurt, coconut oil and baking powder and sea salt. With and electric mixer blend until combined well. It will become a nice dough.

Evenly form dough into 18 balls (about 1 1/2 Tbs each) and place on prepared baking sheet, spacing out evenly.

Place egg white in a small bowl, add 1 tsp of water and mix with a fork or wire whisk until combined.

Brush balls with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake until firm, golden brown on the bottom and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
