Cheesy Cauliflower Bake

olive oil
1 head cauliflower, cut into large florets
1/2 c. mozzarella, shredded
Riced cauliflower
1/2 c. Parmesan, shredded
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (maybe a bit more)

2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. mozzarella, shredded
1/4 c. Parmesan, shredded

Preheat oven to 450 F.
Before baking

On a baking stone or sheet, spread a small amount of olive oil to coat, then lay parchment paper on top.

Boil the cauliflower for about 15 minutes, or until very tender. Drain. Add the cauliflower to a ricer, and press gently over the sink to get rid of the excess water. Then rice into a large bowl. Continue until you have 1 (or 1 1/2) cup cauliflower.

Add the mozzarella, parmesan, egg, oregano, and garlic powder to the riced cauliflower. Mix it all together. Transfer to the baking stone/sheet, and spread it out using your hands.

Bake for 15 minutes.

To make the topping: In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter and the garlic powder. When the cauliflower is done baking, spread the garlic butter over the top. Add the cheeses. Bake 5-8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

Ready to eat!
Give it a minute to cool before cutting and serving.

Pretty simple recipe. Will definitely be making it again!
