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.
