Estimated values based on one serving size.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9x5-inch (23x13-cm) loaf pan with nonstick spray.
- Cut the cauliflower into florets and add to a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower reaches a “rice”-like consistency. You should have 3-4 cups. (900 g)
- Transfer the riced cauliflower to a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 4 minutes to steam the cauliflower and release its liquid. Let sit until cool enough to handle.
- Transfer the riced cauliflower to a bowl lined with cheesecloth or a tea towel. Tightly wrap the cauliflower and squeeze out all of the liquid, until it is dry and crumbles between your fingers. Set aside.
- Separate the yolks and whites of the eggs into two large bowls. Beat the whites with an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
- Add about ¼ of the beaten whites to the bowl of yolks. Then, add the almond flour, Parmesan, if using, garlic, baking powder, butter, and salt. Gently mix with a rubber spatula until combined.
- Add the remaining egg whites, dried cauliflower, and Italian seasoning. Gently fold the ingredients together until just combined. Do not overmix, as this will break down the egg whites.
- Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle the top with sesame seeds, parsley, and rosemary.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown.
- Let cool, then slice and serve as desired.
