Low-carb grilled cheese sandwich


  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese, grated or sliced
  • ¼ cup liquid egg substitute
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, grated or sliced
  • 1 Tsp Sunshine D Original Margarine


Preheat the oven to 200℃. Place the cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Microwave the cauliflower for about 8 minutes (or until cooked). Squeeze out any water. In a bowl combine the cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, egg substitute, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and cut into four squares. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Allow to cool. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese onto the 2 cauliflower squares and top with the remaining squares.

Melt the margarine in saucepan over a medium heat. Place the cauliflower sandwiches into the saucepan and cook for 4 minutes.

Try changing out the Sunshine D Original Margarine for Sunshine D Lite Fat Spread if you feel like something a little lighter.
