We have a new favourite vegetable side dish over here: cheesy cauliflower cakes. They are delicious, nutritious, and come with a bit of heat. Try them. I think you'll like them.

1 medium-sized head cauliflower

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

Cut cauliflower into florets and cook until tender (8-10 minutes).

Drain. Mash cauliflower while warm.

Cool slightly; then stir in cheese, eggs, bread crumbs and seasonings.

Heat olive oil in non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Form the cauliflower mixture into patties (about 3 inches in diameter).

Cook until set and golden in colour...about 2 minutes per side.
