pain-free meal! 🙂
Cauliflower & Feta Fritters
salt & pepper
1 head cauliflower, trimmed into small florets
½ cup wholemeal flour
¼ cup milk
1/2 cup crumbed feta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
½ garlic clove, crushed
2 tsp dried parsley
Spread the florets of cauliflower out on a baking tray. Drizzle with a little oil and season with salt and pepper (don’t go overboard with the salt – the feta has plenty in it). Bake in oven at 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes, until cauliflower is starting to char and become soft. Remove from oven and allow to cool down. Tip onto a chopping board and roughly chop.
Combine other ingredients in a large bowl and add cauliflower to form a batter. Mix well.
Heat a fry pan and spray with a little cooking oil. Drop spoonfuls of mixture onto fry pan and fry on both sides until firm and golden brown (this takes only a few minutes). Place on kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil and repeat with remaining batter.
Serve with wedges of lime or some salsa or anything you like! This recipe makes about 12 small-medium fritters.
PS If you happen to be photographing your culinary efforts, I strongly recommend paying close attention to what you’re doing. This way, you don’t trip over and throw the entire plate of fritters all over your freshly-mopped floor, like I did. You wouldn’t know it from the photo, but my fritters were thrown far and wide across my lounge room in a spectacular display of clumsiness. See? It’s the cauliflower…it hates me 🙂
