Cauliflower Bread Veggie Sandwich with Avocado Spread

Loaded Cauliflower Bread Veggie SandwichSince giving up gluten, one of the things I miss most is a good sandwich! I know, I know, there are lots of gluten free options, but I personally tend not to like them. When I’m out and about, I usually opt for some sort of salad, so my life tends to be virtually sandwich-less.( Insert sad face here.)

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a place called “Lenny’s” with a friend. They feature a make your own salad bar, and lots of yummy sandwiches and wraps. I ordered a salad, but my friend ordered a gorgeous veggie sandwich. It looked amazing. I envied each bite she took! Three weeks later, I was still thinking about that amazing sandwich.

I knew that I wanted to create a “bread-less” version of a sandwich. I wanted it to boast beautiful colors, satisfying textures, and complimentary flavors!

I used my Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe, and simply formed thick square patties. Out came BREAD!!! Now, I’m not completely delusional. I know that cauliflower bread isn’t exactly like real bread. That being said, it totally satisfied my craving, and enabled me to create exactly what I wanted: A LOADED veggie sandwich!!!
