Cauliflower toast is perhaps my new obsession. Cauliflower toast is an easy way to include a serve of veggies while enjoying a comforting option. Also a healthy toast topping when avocados are expensive.
I don’t often have toast, but sometimes I feel like a more comforting breakfast/snack and toast is just calling my name. Listening to my body (not my head – my body) is important to me so on the rare occasion that I feel like I need toast, I have it.
Usually I love avocado and tomato on toast but a week or two ago, when the toast-feels hit, we had neither. I didn’t want nut butter and I felt like something savoury. I opened the fridge hoping something with magically appear (does anyone else do this, even when they know there is nothing there?!) and I saw the steamed vegetables I’d prepared for my kids (watch my meal prep for kids video here). And while we are on the topic of kids, you can check out my tips for feeding toddlers in this video.
I don’t know what sparked me to mash cauliflower and top my toast with it, but whatever the reason I am SO grateful. Cauliflower toast is SO GOOD!
It’s not really a recipe, because it’s kind of like smashed avocado. You just smash, season and enjoy.
Mix it all together…
Here’s what you need to do to prepare your cauliflower toast:
- 1/4 head cauliflower
- 4 slices good quality bread, toasted (I prefer rye, ezekiel or a good quality gluten free bread)
- Seasoning of choice (see below tips)
- Wash and break the cauliflower into forets. Place in a double steamer (broccoli in top, water in bottom). Bring the water to the boil and steam the cauliflower for approximately 10 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Place cauliflower florets on a flat, clean chopping board and using a fork gently mash the cauliflower until preferred consistency (I like mine mashed, but not too smooth).
- Take spoonful amounts and spread over toast. Season with your preferred options and enjoy.
- My favourite SAVOURY seasoning option: Salt + chilli flakes
- My favourite SWEET seasoning option: Berry powder (freeze dried berries), stevia and cinnamon
My little ‘helper’.
I’ve been trying out a few different flavour combinations for you guys so I thought I’d share with you my favourites, in order.
THE BEST – so simple, so good!
Salt (I’m a little obsessed with Cyprus black salt at the moment) and chilli flakes.
Turmeric, salt and paprika
STILL GOOD (and a sweeter option)
Berry powder (freeze dried), stevia and cinnamon
I’d love to know what flavour combos you come up with! Let me know below!
