This Mediterranean-style flatbread—topped with hummus, veggies, and cheese—will give cauliflower pizza crust a run for its money. The cauliflower rice mixture bakes into cheesy, golden-brown perfection, and your family will never know the star ingredient is a veggie. Feel free to experiment with any flavor of hummus, such as roasted garlic or roasted red pepper.

Forget potatoes. Tots made out of cauliflower rice are just as tasty, thanks to a handful of breadcrumbs, a generous amount of cheese, and a sprinkling of chives (which add a subtle oniony flavor). You’ll feel so much better about feeding these to the kids (they’re baked in the oven, instead of deep-fried), and we guarantee they’ll gobble ‘em up.
