Avocado Cauliflower Toasts
Rice the cauliflower by cutting it into florets first and then pulsing in a food processor until it’s the size of rice grains. You may purchase it already riced instead if desired.
Cook riced cauliflower either in a steamer basket or via microwave for about 7 minutes until soft.
Let cool until cool enough to handle and then wrap the cauliflower in cheesecloth.
Squeeze out as much water as you can. You want this to be as dry as possible so it resembles a crumbly dough afterward. Working in smaller batches to squeeze it out may be easier for some.
Place the cauliflower in a bowl and mix in the rest of the bread ingredients.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly brush a baking sheet with olive oil.
Divide dough into 4 equal pieces and form them into squares with your hands on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake 15-17 minutes until browned.
Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
Gently lift each toast from the pan and top with desired toppings. Serve immediately.
Notes: Bread will get soggy if you use wet toppings and let it sit. If you are not planning to eat it right away, store it in an airtight container and apply topping right before eating.
The ketogenic diet is on a roll and there’s really no question why it has gained so much momentum both inside the athletic world and out. Dubbed the keto diet for short, this low carb, high-fat diet supplies the body with a plethora of healthy fats which are used as energy for our body instead of carbohydrates. This way of eating provides a nutritionally dense vegetable and protein base with high-fat energy for us to perform our best while maintaining a slim physique. A keto meal in its most simple form combines a protein, paired with a green vegetable (or other low carb veg) and fats. This series of ketonic diet will provide a more inspired approach to these combinations that you can mix and match for a unique ketogenic eating experience.
Cauliflower is the great chameleon of the cruciferous vegetable world. It has the ability to blend into many dishes without lending a ton of flavor. This makes it an ideal suitor for blending with other ingredients to result in a keto style toast. Cauliflower toasts are hand-holdable once cooled and can be made with any variety of topping from melted cheeses or pizza fixings to other savory options.
This toast starts with riced cauliflower which is combined with cheese, egg, flax, and seasonings to create a rounded flavor that balances with any topping. For an energy-filled meal or snack, top with avocado slices, a protein like a tuna or chicken, and a drizzle of healthy fats in the form of spicy mayo or almond sauce. Feel free to top these toasts with any other savory toppings as well.
