Cheesy Scallion Cauliflower Fritters
I have stated before how much I love cooking with cauliflower and now I used them to make these cheesy scallion fritters. To complete the dish I served it with smoked salmon, sriracha sour cream, avocado and a poached egg. I must say they were gone pretty quickly as the combination of flavors were very yummy! I had a few leftover so I ate them for lunch the next day with some tuna salad and avocado; I reheated them in a pan with a bit of olive oil.
Making dishes like this is so much fun since it is very easy and quick to make but taste delicious!
This recipe makes 8-10 fritters.
½ Cauliflower, cut into florets (or about 450g of florets)
1 cup Gouda cheese, shredded
4 scallions, thinly sliced
½ cup breadcrumbs
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon lemon pepper
¼ teaspoon paprika powder
Pinch of chili powder
Start by cooking the cauliflower florets in boiling water until tender, about 10 minutes and drain. Let them cool off for 5 minutes and then add the cauliflower to a food processor and pulse until the texture becomes rice-like. Next combine the cauliflower with the remaining ingredients for the fritters and then form the cauliflower mixture into mini pancakes. Heat a pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and cook the fritters for about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve with any dips you love, or smoked salmon like I did. Enjoy!
