Cauliflower Fritters

Serves: 6

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 10 minutes


1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets

⅓ cup parsley or coriander, roughly chopped

1 lemon, cut into wedges

2 eggs

½ cup standard flour

⅓ cup Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons olive oil

Pinch salt and pepper


Place the cauliflower into a food processor and process until the cauliflower resembles rice.

Transfer the cauliflower into a bowl and add the eggs, flour, parsley or coriander, salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese.

Mix everything well — it should be paste-like (if mixture is too wet, add a little more flour).

Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add the olive oil.

Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture to form fritters. Fry the fritters for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden.

Serve the fritters with lemon juice, extra herbs and sour cream or dressing of choice.
