When my friend first suggested the humble cauliflower as a sandwich filling, I was skeptical. But she persisted, knowing I won't resist tasting a new flavor for long. Specially when she was cooking dinner. And I liked it. So much so that I made it again for dinner tonight, just for myself.
To make one sandwich, tear a chunk from a cauliflower head and grate the florets finely. We need roughly 2 tbsp of grated cauliflower. To this, add 1/2 tbsp cream, a tbsp of grated cheddar, 2-3 finely chopped mint leaves and a hearty pinch each of salt and crushed black pepper. Mix well, then spread on a white bread slice. Top with another slice of bread, apply butter on both sides and grill or toast until lightly browned.
