Cauliflower Fritters


Makes about 12 fritters

1 small head cauliflower
¼ cup almond flour
2 spring onions
1 large egg
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil for cooking

Blitz the cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles cauliflower rice.
Transfer cauliflower rice to a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 8 minutes, until cooked.
Allow cauliflower to cool before placing in a tea towel and twist it to squeeze as much moisture as you can. Please DO NOT do this with steaming hot cauliflower!
Transfer the cauliflower rice to a mixing bowl, add egg, spring onions, parsley, salt and pepper and mix well.
Mix almond flour, baking powder and Parmesan in a separate bowl and add to the cauliflower. Stir until combined.
Heat two tablespoons of butter or coconut oil in a large heavy frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering.
Drop spoonfuls of cauliflower mixture into the pan (only a few at a time), press them flat with the help of a spatula and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
Drain briefly on paper towels to soak up any excess grease.
Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream and sprinkle with finely chopped scallions.
