One of my favorite things about low carb diets is finding new and creative ways to make some of my favorite foods using healthy whole food ingredients. These days I completely avoid anything that contains wheat or gluten, so I’ve had to come up with some pretty clever recipes for making low carb breads and sandwiches. The recipe I’m sharing today is one such recipe, as it makes a genius low carb avocado toast meal using a bread made out of cauliflower. I know what you’re thinking but trust me when I tell you that it’s 100% possible to make a low carb bread out of cauliflower — and it’s absolutely delicious!
A Low Carb Breakfast With Everything You Need
The first step for making this toast recipe is to add your cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse them until they have a texture similar to rice. Making cauliflower ‘rice’ like this is invaluable when it comes to making all kinds of low carb recipes. Along with zucchini, cauliflower is actually one of the most versatile low carb veggies out there. You can use it as a healthy alternative for all kinds of different things. It’s also incredibly nutrient-dense, providing a ton of essential vitamins, minerals, and an incredibly high amount of antioxidants. (1)
Next, you’ll need to heat up one tablespoon of coconut oil over a medium heat. If you’ve been using vegetable oil for all of your cooking needs, then you should stop immediately! Despite what mainstream health advice recommends, vegetable oil is actually a leading cause of inflammation, which in turn can contribute to many types of diseases. Go ahead and cook your cauliflower ‘rice’, seasoning it with some salt and pepper for a few minutes and then transfer it into a bowl. Add in your eggs and mix them to combine. The eggs help to hold the dough together while adding a nice amount of protein, fat, and other nutrients to the recipe.
With your bread dough finished, follow the directions below to transfer it to a baking sheet and then throw them in the oven for 15-25 minutes. While the dough is baking, feel free to prepare your egg and avocado toast topping. Start by heating up a bit of olive oil, which is another one of my favorite cooking oils because it’s an easy way to add more healthy fats into your meals, and it’s also great for your cardiovascular health. (2) Fry your four eggs in the olive oil, cooking them in batches if necessary.
Top your slices of cauliflower toast with a few avocado slices and then add the fried egg on top before seasoning with salt and pepper. I love eating toast with avocado and fried eggs because it’s a delicious meal that offers plenty of protein with a great mix heart healthy fats. Avocados are also a major dietary source of disease-fighting antioxidants as well, meaning not only is this recipe delicious, but it’s also incredibly good for your health as well. (3)
