As much as I love bread (I could eat it with every meal), subbing in a veggie can be a wonderful thing. I was first introduced to "veggie toast" about a year ago and it sounded really interesting, so I gave it a try.
I sliced a cauliflower, placed it in a toaster oven and about 10 minutes later, the veggie toast had been created. I topped it with an egg, arugula, a drizzle of olive oil and seasoned it with salt & freshly ground pepper. If you have some leftover vinaigrette or favorite sauce, feel free to add that as well.
There was no bread found in this toast, but it was a surprisingly satisfying breakfast that left me feeling really good that day.
Not only is the veggie toast super satisfying, but it's visually beautiful; which can do a lot more for the start of your day than you might think.
The hardest part of making the cauliflower toast is slicing the cauliflower (which really isn't that hard). Use a very sharp knife and slice towards the middle, using your second hand to hold the cauliflower together so it stays together. Keep all the remaining outside parts of the cauliflower for dinner or even make cauliflower rice out of it.
Another great veggie toast to try is by using sweet potato slices with a goat cheese spread on top. So good!
