SCD Recipe: Grilled Cheese on Cauliflower Bread

If there’s one regular food I wish I could have it would be a sandwich, more specifically grilled cheese. Lately I’ve really been into using cauliflower for rice, pizza crust, and bread. Cauliflower crust and bread is not really like bread, but I like that you can make things into the form of pizza or sandwich and get a good melt with the cheese. That’s what we’re looking for!

I also like the taste of the cauliflower. ¬†You can add flavor with salt, pepper, garlic, or whatever you like. I don’t do too much different between making pizza crust or cauliflower bread, it’s mostly just the shape.

With this batch I tried cooking at a higher temperature for a shorter time. I also toasted the pieces in a pan before adding the cheese for the sandwich. The key to good cauliflower crust and bread is to squeeze as much water out of the cooked cauliflower as you can. I buy pre-riced cauliflower. I don’t have a food processor so this is so much easier for me.

It’s the only thing I microwave, but of course you can cook it in a pot if you do’t want to use the microwave. I freeze it and then microwave it. When it cooks it softens, but it also stays a little cold, which makes it easy to squeeze out the water without burning your hands or having to wait forever for it to cool off.
