It’s about STUFFING our mouths with delicious food and NOT feeling guilty about it! Trust me, it’s hard to feel guilty when you are sinking your teeth into these yummy vegan cauliflower sandwiches!

These sammies were so good, and looked so gorgeous that I had to snap a pic…or five. Don’t judge me.

The food love is strong with this one.

These sandwiches made a great party meal for my sons FOURTH birthday celebration, and I simply had to share.

It’s amazing how time flies folks.

I feel like just yesterday I was working around the clock, breastfeeding and changing diapers and LOSING MY MIND. Well, I still lose my mind sometimes, but at least now I’m dealing with a pre-schooler.

We always forget this as parents. We can’t help but take each day for granted, forgetting that our children are getting older by the second. And then, BOOM, another birthday comes and it’s like, what the hell just happened?

If only birthday parties could slow down the process of aging. Can’t I hold onto my pre-schooler forever?

*Sigh*, but really, we know it can’t last forever, which is what makes over-the-top birthdays totally worth it. I’m not a hire-a-magician-and-bouncy-house kinda mom, but I like to make my kids feel special on their birthdays.

I also like to treat everyone that comes to my house with damn good food, hence these cauliflower sandwiches.

I’ve made these a few times, and they are so good they even win the hearts of meat-eaters, so you KNOW it’s a score!

Ah! What lucky kiddos to have these awesome sauce sandwiches at your son’s birthday party? I love this idea. They are cute & fun and sound absolutely delicious. Totally going to make these for *my* next party. Even if it’s a party with just me and my husband. For supper. Ha!

Thank you so much Kimmy! I hope you get a chance to make them (even if it is just dinner for two!). I’d love to hear how they turn out!

Forget about parties – I want these for lunch today – actually I would love to serve them at kids parties but I just am not sure that they would be embraced by the kids I know

Thanks for stopping by Johanna! Honestly, the first couple of times I served this I was nervous that meat-eaters wouldn’t like it, and was pleasantly surprised that it was a huge hit! I think with kids it’s part of how you present it and part taste- this cauliflower salad would still be great between toast and even without the lettuce on top. Hope you get to try it out soon!

Ooooh, cauliflower is my daughter’s favorite AND her 4th birthday party is coming up, as well! Pinning the heck out of this post and trying these sandwiches out later this week!

Wonderful!! Happy bday to the little one- 4 is my favorite age:) Hope you enjoy this recipe, I’d love to hear how it turns out!

Cauliflower is wonderful stuff and this sandwich looks good. I don’t know about nutritional yeast, what is it? Could you use something else? Yeast can be hard on my stomach.

This sandwich look delicious though and worth trying.

Hi Leanna! I’m sure you could leave the nutritional yeast out (it’s just powdered or flaked seasoning that is usually fortified with B12), however it does add a bit of flavor (has almost a cheddar-like taste to it). I think it’s important to note that nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast though, so it may not have the same affect on your system!
