Food Network Montly Cookalong: Maine "Lobster" Roll

Okay, so I don't eat bread anymore- but that doesn't stop me from creating sandwiches for everyone else! Plus this "lobster" salad was delicious on it's own.

 As soon as I saw the Sandwich King's recipe list I knew what I wanted to V-create: jeff-mauro/buttery-lobster-rolls-for-your-baby

Can you tell what it's made from? 


Yep- cauliflower.

 Mostly the stem parts. I just put them in the steamer basket with some toasted nori  and steamed until tender.  Then fished out the larger nori sheet pieces because at this point they looked green and a little slimy. (Not the look I was going for.) 

 Mixed with some vegan mayo, chopped celery, lemon juice, a drop of liquid smoke, salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne.  Threw some chopped scallions on top for color. And put it inside a lightly toasted, earth balanced hot dog bun. And there you have it! A vegan lobster roll!
