Healthy Cauliflower Fritters

Posted on

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons minced scallions, plus more for garnishing
  • Olive oil
  • Yogurt or sour cream, for serving

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook it just until fork tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer it to a cutting board and using a sharp knife, cut it into very small pieces. (The cauliflower pieces should be the size of peas or smaller.)
  2. Measure out 4 cups of the chopped cauliflower. (Discard the remaining cauliflower or use for cauliflower tots or mashed cauliflower).

  3. Combine the cauliflower, flour, eggs, garlic, scallions, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  4.  Line a plate with paper towels. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and lightly coat it with olive oil. Scoop out 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of the cauliflower mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly with a spatula and spacing them at least 1 inch apart.
  5. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, flip them once and cook them an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re golden brown and cooked through. Transfer the fritters to the paper towel-lined plate. Serve them warm topped with yogurt or sour cream.
