Cauliflower fritters are our new favourite recipe. I grew up on potato fritters, however in our house we eat according to the 4 hour body lifestyle by Tim Ferris which means gluten, dairy and sugar free, lots of protein and slow carb through vegetables, meat, nuts, natural foods. It has been fantastic for our overall health, moods, productivity and even our kids behaviour. As such, we have been experimenting with recipes and food to find a selection we enjoy. I have seen cauliflower fritters over the past year, however they all contained cheese or other ingredients we couldn’t eat. I’ve scaled it back to a super simple recipe that you can mix up or add things to.
1/2 cauliflower, grated
1/2 onion, finely diced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp oil (we use macadamia)
Step 1 – Grate the cauliflower into a bowl. mix in all the ingredients except the oil
Step 2 – Heat a pan over medium heat. Add the oil.
Step 3 – Take spoonfuls of the mixture and press into the pan. Be careful with the oil and the potential for it to spit when hot. Pat the spoonfuls down to about 1cm thick. Fry for 2 – 3 minutes, until golden brown. The cauliflower fritters will start to brown at the edges when ready to flip. Cook for another 2 – 3 minutes on the other side.
Step 4 – Continue with all the mixture until the fritters are all cooked. Serve with salt and pepper.
These recipe is extremely versatile. You can add bacon, spinach, zucchini or any herbs or spices you like. They can be served as a snack on their own or as a meal with salad.
My family and I love them. They taste like the potato fritters I grew up with.
