Looking for a fun new way to try cauliflower? This is a quick kid-friendly recipe, high in Vitamin C and a source of protein and dietary fiber. You can use already riced cauliflower or prepare it yourself using a food processor, box grater, or knife and cutting board. These are best when freshly baked.

1 egg

3 tablespoons flour

1⁄4 cup low-fat cheddar cheese

Optional: 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
