    cheddar cheese or ¼ cup nutritional yeast

  • Start by mincing the cauliflower. I recommend using a food processor for this.

  • To the minced or riced cauliflower, add flours, herbs – garlic and dried herbs, jalapeños, cheese or nutritional yeast, salt and mix well.

  • Sometimes, you may notice that the dough is dry after adding flours. In that case, add 1 to 2 tablespoon of aquafaba or almond milk. I ended up adding 2 tablespoon of almond milk to the mixture. 
  • Then transfer the mixture to a bowl and add husk, chia seeds or flax egg(1 flax egg). Mix really well.

  • Allow the seeds to absorb the liquid really well. After five minutes, the mixture will look doughy and workable. 
  • Scoop out few tablespoons of the mixture into the muffin pan and spread it really well.

  • The mixture usually doesn’t stick to nonstick baking pan. But I highly recommend using greased muffin pan for this recipe.
  • Cook in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, add more jalapeños and cheddar toppings.
