RECIPE: Cauliflower and Cheese Cakes

Posted: 04/30/2013 5:18 pm


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.
