Ingredients needed for cauliflower toast:
To make cauliflower toast simple and easy, I kept the ingredients pretty basic! I used the following ingredients for this recipe:
- Riced cauliflower! I start with the frozen riced cauliflower, and defrost it as well as squeeze out the extra liquid. You can start with a head of cauliflower and run it through a food processor. But, getting the frozen riced cauliflower from Costco for me seems to be less expensive, and easier!
- Light butter– I like using this for a light buttery taste, and a low calorie way to bind ingredients together. My favorite is the Country Crock light spread, for 35 calories per tablespoon. Or this Land-O-Lakes spread for 50 calories per tablespoon.
- Self rising flour– I realize there are a lot of people looking for cauliflower toast who want it gluten free, but this is not that recipe. I like using small amounts of flour in order to not only get a good result, but to make the toast more bread like! You can definitely use a gluten free flour, but I have not tried it.
- And finally, and egg to bind it altogether!
How to make Cauliflower Toast
Put all ingredients in a food processor, and pulse it until it’s combined. This is going to still be pretty wet.
Heat a skillet on medium-low, and spray with cooking spray.
Spoon and press 1/4 of the dough into a square cookie cutter, and remove the cookie cutter. It should keep it’s shape. Cook on both sides until crispy. (about 5 minutes per side).
Let cool completely. The longer this sits out the better. You can also quick cook it in the oven for 10 more minutes at 350 to dry it out even more, and make it easier to handle.
The magic comes in baking the dough. I use the skillet to get the top and bottom crispy, and sometimes finish it in the oven to make sure it’s cooked through. I’ve done it without the oven, and it’s not bad- it’s just better with a little extra oven time.
Note: You can have round “toast” and it tastes just the same. haha!
