Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 1 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella (or your favorite cheese)
  • extra virgin olive oil (the least amount necessary to coat the pan)
  • a tiny amount of fresh chopped garlic (or garlic powder to taste)
  • 1/4 cup flour (optional)

Instructions 

Preparing the Cauliflower Fritters

  • Cut the stem and discard. Cut the head of cauliflower into large pieces.
  • Pulse with an immersion blender or grate one head of cauliflower with the large holes of a box grater. (It shouldn't be liquid, but without large pieces either).
  • Squeeze out excess water with a cheese cloth. (I didn't have one handy, so I just spread the cauliflower out and dried it in a pan on the lowest heat for a two minutes).
  • Put cauliflower in a mixing bowl. (Let cool a minute, if necessary).
  • Whisk eggs and add to the cauliflower.
  • Add seasonings.
  • Add flour (optional)
  • Mix completely, but gently.

Cooking the Cauliflower Fritters

  • Heat extra virgin olive oil in a pan on medium.
  • Spoon out the cauliflower mix and flatten with the back of a spoon.
  • Cook for approximately four or five minutes per side.
  • Very gently, flip with a spatula. (They are quite delicate).
  • During the last minute of cooking, add your favorite cheese.
