Single serving cauliflower bread can be made in a mug and cooked in the microwave. It's ready in just a few minutes!


  • 1/2 cup loosely packed finely riced raw cauliflower (see note)
  • 1/4 cup  freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg


  • Combine all ingredients in a wide rimmed microwave-safe mug. Mix thoroughly with a spoon until all ingredients are moist and coated with egg. Gently pack down cauliflower batter and smooth surface with the back of your spoon.
  • Cook in microwave at full power for 1 min 30 seconds to 2 minutes. I recommend stopping at 1 min 30 seconds initially to check on it. Your bread is done when the edges have begun to pull away from the sides of the mug and the surface looks dry except for a small area in the center, which may still look slightly gooey. This is okay as your bread will continue to cook once you remove it from the microwave and should cook the center.
  • Let bread cool for a few minutes before eating. If desired, you can sprinkle on some more cheese and/or chopped parsley.


  • To make the cauliflower rice, I pulsed my raw cauliflower through my food processor.
