A Recipe of Avocado Cauliflower Grilled Sandwich
The ingredients of this recipe is for 2 servings
Needed preparation time: 20 min
Cooking time: 30 min
4 cups of cauliflower rice
⅓ cup of almond flour
2 organic eggs
Half a teaspoon of sea salt
A quarter teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of ghee
2 mashed avocados, ripe
Method of Preparation:
In order to draw the water out from the riced cauliflower add some salt. Leave it to stand for 20 minutes, and after that squeeze out the liquid. But, if you have bagged riced cauliflower, then it is already dry so you do not have to follow this step.
Mix nicely the cauliflower rice with the almond flour, egg, and black pepper. The result of the mixing should be a moist mixture that stays in shape. Once you have achieved that scoop one cup and then place it on a baking sheet that has been previously lined with parchment paper. Next, form the mixture into squares by pressing down the tops and then siding it with your fingertips. Heat the oven at 400°F, and bake the cauliflower bread for 25 minutes. Once it is ready, set it aside to cool off for 5 minutes.
The next step is greasing the cast iron skillet with ghee, lower the heat to medium, and then spread the mashed avocado onto the cauliflower bread and on top of it place another slice of bread. Grill the sandwich for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
