Mild, slightly savoury and with a little cheesy flavour these cauliflower fritters make a wonderfully healthy snack or a light meal. Serve with a dollop of yogurt or with a light green salad.

Cauliflower is considered healthy food, and it is antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory. Eating cauliflower will provide your body with plenty of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, B6, folate and beta-carotene while supporting healthy digestion and detoxification. For those that follow a low-calorie diet, cauliflower is low in calories and high in fiber


1 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets
2 large eggs, whisked
3 green onions, thinly sliced (green and white parts)
1/3 cup GF garbanzo flour
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. GF baking powder
¾ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. thyme
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. coconut or grapeseed oil
Note: for paleo option, you can substitute almond flour for garbanzo flour


Steam cauliflower florets for 3 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and chop to the size of rice. The cauliflower should make 3 cups or rice. This can be done a day in advance. If you have any cauliflower rice left over, add it to soups, stews or salads
Combine cauliflower rice with egg and green onions
In a separate bowl stir together garbanzo flour, Parmesan cheese, baking powder, sea salt, thyme and black pepper
Add cauliflower mixture to dry ingredients and mix until combined
Heat oil over medium heat in a large non-stick frying pan and drop spoonfuls of cauliflower mixture onto frying pan. Leave some room between each fritter. Slightly press down each fritter with a spatula. Cook until golden brown about 3 minutes on each side. Drain briefly on a paper towel. Keep warm in the oven until ready to serve
