Oh Wonderful Cauliflower… Grilled Cheese!
Cauliflower… the great white cruciferous vegetable…the culinary chameleon…. one of the healthiest foods on earth. Cauliflower is loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals (you know, those plant chemicals that have protective and disease preventing properties). Studies have found that it helps ward off diseases like heart disease and cancer. So, eat up because not only does it taste good but it’s oh so good for you.
Back in the day, the only way most of us thought to serve cauliflower, was steamed or plain ol’ raw. Over the last few years the way we eat and incorporate Cauliflower into our diets has drastically changed. Today, meatless meals and finding carb alternatives is the norm. We have become innovative with our vegetables but especially with Cauliflower. Consumers now chop it up and make it into tots, puree it into a creamy mash, or serve it up as a rice replacement. The creative cooking craze is allowing everyone to not only enjoy the vegetable, but helping us find new ways to substitute Cauliflower into our favorite dishes, and making it the most popular vegetable around.
Here at Gold Coast we grow cauliflower year-round. All of our Cauliflower is washed and ready to use, available in various formats including florets and stalks. But today we are highlighting our “riced” cauliflower, our trademarked and award winning Caulifornia Snow™. Gold Coast snow is a unique, pre-washed, California grown, specialty cut that comes packaged in a 1lb.bag, and ready for your culinary creations.
One of the first ideas many had for using “riced” cauliflower, was as a pizza crust/base. A no bread pizza?!? GENIUS! We’ll try anything that makes one of our favorite meals healthier but still super tasty. Which brings us to today’s recipe. What other classic dish is made with bread and loaded with cheese… you guessed it, grilled cheese! We are axing the bread, making our own out of our Caulifornia Snow™, and smothering it with some white cheddar! HELLO YUMMINESS! So, check out the step-by-step video (to get your mouth watering) and then whip up your very own sandwich at home with the recipe that’s included below. We hope you enjoy the video, and thanks for traveling with us to Grilled Cheese Lovers Island… we mean “New and Improved” Grilled Cheese Lovers Island.
