I once heard of a diet that ruled out white food. While the idea was commendable: no white bread, white potatoes, white rice, etc., I submit that cauliflower is the white food that we should eat often!
Cauliflower became popular as a replacement for high-carb rice, potatoes, and even bread as is the case here. Then it became very expensive. It’s been my observation that the price has since levelled off somewhat. So, whenever you see some reasonably priced cauliflower, pick it up and try this recipe. There are lots of other great cauliflower recipes out there, too.

Each cauliflower bun gives you a serving of vegetable and adds interesting variety to a meal. I would not say that cauliflower buns are bread-like, but they are tasty and can be eaten nicely with your fingers. Mine hold together well and keep for a few days in the refrigerator.
You’ll see in this video how to mix and assemble the Cauliflower Buns. If you don’t have a food processor, you could grate the cauliflower by hand. Just, watch out that you don’t skin your fingers! I really couldn’t manage well at all without my food processor.
This recipe would work on the Elimination Diet after you have reintroduced nuts and are okay with almonds.
