Description

These cakes are easy and versatile, perfect as a side or a main dish. You can use any flavor combination, like garlic and chili, or add different mix-ins, like bacon, green onions, or cheese. They can also be topped with salsa, sour cream, chutney, or even a fried egg, as seen in the picture (the cake is peeking out from under the egg).

Ingredients

  • 1 head Cauliflower
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ cups Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Each, Salt And Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Seasonings Of Choice (garlic, Chili Powder, Rosemary, Creole Seasoning, Hot Sauce, Etc.)
  • ¼ cups Add-ins, Such As Cheese, Green Onions, Bacon, Etc. (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • Toppings, Optional (salsa, Chutney, Cheese, Sour Cream, Cilantro, Etc.)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Cut cauliflower into florets. Boil or steam until tender, approximately 10 minutes. Place florets in bowl and mash.

3. Add eggs, flour, seasoning, and add-ins. (Note: It is a good idea to first add seasoning and add-ins to the mashed cauliflower before adding the eggs and flour. This way you can taste and adjust seasoning! Start with 1 tablespoon of seasonings, and work up from there. For the add-ins, start with 1/4 cup and add more according to your tastes.) Mix until combined well.

4. Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup, scoop mixture into patties and place on non-stick or foil lined baking tray. Brush each cake lightly with oil.

5. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip cakes, brush the tops lightly with oil, and bake 10 more minutes.

Enjoy! Let me know if you come up with a fantastic flavor combination that I should try.

Made these tonight and they were fantastic! I liked them so much I almost ate the entire batch. Definitely a keeper. I think I’m going to experiment and add make a small batch of sweet ones – maybe adding some vanilla, cinammon and stevia , honey or maple syrup.

These were great! My kids, who normally do not eat cauliflower, liked them too. I added scallions, bacon and cheese. Very good. Thank you!

These were wonderful! I used garbanzo bean flour instead of regular flour and added about 4 chopped scallions and a medly of dry spices – garlic, parsley, cilantro, dried tomato, chipotle. Great as a snack the next day.
