Recipe

Cheese, cauliflower, fritter. Say no more. These crispy, crunchy cauliflower cakes are perfect as a vegetarian entree, veggie burger, or as a side dish. They are also great for low carb dieters with the addition on flaxseed meal in place of the flour. I recommend adding some fresh herbs or spices to the fritters to match whatever you are preparing. Consider including some fresh thyme and basil, curry powder and ground ginger, smoked paprika and oregano, or Italian seasoning and a squirt of tomato paste. They also make a delicious breakfast with a fried or poached egg.

Directions

  1. Cook the cauliflower until it is tender. You can boil it, microwave it, or steam it.
  2. Mash the cauliflower with a potato masher (or the back of a fork) and drain out any excess moisture. The more moisture there is the harder it will be to form the fritters so it is extremely important to squeeze out any excess moisture with a paper towel or cloth.
  3. Mix in the onion, flour (or flaxseed), garlic, salt, pepper, cheese, and eggs. If mixture isn’t holding together well, refrigerate for 15 minutes or add more flour/flaxseed.
  4. Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add 1/4 cup cauliflower mixture and press down with the back of a spoon to form the fritter. Cook for 3-4 minutes until nicely browned and flip over. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. In my skillet, I cooked 4 fritters at a time, adding another 1 tsp. of olive oil for the second batch.
