Cauliflower Sandwich Bun

I figured if you can make a pizza crust, there’s no reason you can’t use cauliflower in place of a sandwich bun. I was really happy with how these came out. This would actually be a great cheese-less pizza base if you just modify how you shape it!



Cauliflower Sandwich Bun

Ingredients:

1 cup grated cauliflower (Ninja!)
¼ cup egg beaters
1 tablespoon flaxseed
2 teaspoons coconut flour
Salt and onion powder to taste

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450. Use a food processor to grate your cauliflower.
2. Combine the cauliflower, egg beaters, flaxseed, coconut flour and spices in a bowl. Combine well.
3. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Form the crust ingredient two circles resembling the top and bottom of a bun. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and cook until the crust is lightly browned, 15 minutes.
4. Let buns cool on a cooking rack while you set your oven to broil. Set the cooling rack on your cookie sheet and place in the oven. Broil until a little crispy, about 2 minutes.

I melted some low-fat cheddar on the bun while it was under the broiler, then sandwiched a Boca burger inside. Incredibly bun-like!
