How to Make Cauliflower Fritters:

  1. Steam or boil the cauliflower florets for 5 minutes and then drain.
  2. Use a fork or a potato mash to break up the flowers and mash them down. 
  3. Add the pepper, lemon zest, garlic, parsley, oregano, flour, Parmesan cheese, and egg or chia egg. Stir well to combine. 
  4. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. When hot, using a tablespoon or an ice cream scoop, scoop out the batter and place it on the baking tray. Then, using the back of the spoon, flatten to form a fritter.
  5. Cook each side of the fritter for about 3-4 minutes, until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter. 

These can be stored in the fridge for two days or frozen for up to 3 months!
