Herb Cauliflower "Bread" Grilled Cheese 
Serves 2

 

  INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed into florets and steamed until very tender 

  • 1 large egg, beaten 

  • 1/2 cup grated swiss cheese

  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced rosemary 

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning blend

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 

  • 2 thin slices of cheddar cheese, or any preferred cheese 

  • 1 cup arugula 

  • Condiment of your choice, we used chipotle mayo~ 

 DIRECTIONS:

 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Steam the cauliflower. After the cauliflower is very tender (about 30 + minutes),   transfer to a bowl and mash with a potato masher until the texture resembles small grains of rice throughout (see   picture). Lay a double layer of paper towels on the counter and pour cauliflower mash onto it. Using another double   layer paper towel, press the cauliflower to remove as much moisture as possible, you may go through a couple paper   towels for this step.

 

 2. Once the water is removed as best as possible, transfer to a bowl and add the remaining ingredients (herbs,   seasoning, cheese, egg). Stir to combine, an airy moist dough ball should begin to form in the bowl as you incorporate   the mixture.

 

 3. Separate the "dough ball" into four segments. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat, flatten out   each portion and shape to your desired "bread shape." Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops and edges begin   to brown and crisp up. Remove from oven and allow them to sit on the pan for a few minutes.

 

 4. Assemble sandwich with the condiments, cheese and arugula (and anything else you can imagine, sliced apple   and caramelized onion would be amazing...). Place in a pinini press and enjoy warm!
