Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great day. I’m so excited to finally get back into the swing of things here. As I mentioned before there are a ton of recipes on Pinterest that I’ve wanted to try, and I figured today would be the day to get back in the kitchen and try the first recipe.
I was so excited about the massive head of cauliflower that I decided to start of my kitchen adventures by veganizing a recipe for Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes. I’m chowing down on these right now and they are absolutely incredible!!
Don’t they look delicious?! Let me tell you, the flavor packed into these little patties is incredible. I strayed from the original recipe just a bit but it came out amazing. They can be served as a mash as well and would probably be easier that way. Yum!
Cheesy Cauliflower Patties
2 cups cauliflower, chopped into large florets
1/2 cup cheddar Daiya shreds (I used Mozzarella because it was all I could find and it tasted great too)
1 1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds (you can sub bread crumbs if you like)
salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
1 tsp olive oil
1. Cook cauliflower in boiling water until tender. This should take 10-15 minutes.
2. Drain the cauliflower then mash while still warm. Stir in the rest of your ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings.
3. Spray a large pan with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Form the mixture into patties and add to pan. Cook until brown then flip and cook other side. Enjoy!
*Note – My patties did fall apart a little bit since there isn’t too much of a binder in there. They are very delicate so handle with care. I recommend making small patties that will flip easily with a spatula. If they fall apart they will be just as delicious! Or, you can just skip the whole patty process and just serve the mash as is. I’d recommend heating the mixture over a medium heat just to make sure the cheese has melted. Yum!
I served my patties with some baby carrots and one of the giant pickles I picked up at the store yesterday. It was such a delicious and satisfying meal!
I hope you all have a great night tonight! I’ll be back tomorrow with more food
