These cauliflower fritters are a delicious side dish or even main course for vegetarians!

Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable. You can pretend it’s rice or even mashed potatoes! You just can’t get more versatile then that with any other veggie!

So I thought I’d make cauliflower “pancakes” too. Only these little buggers are savory and boy are they yummy. You can top them with hummus or salsa if you wish, but they are good by themselves.

Mini Chef loves them topped with parmesan or cheddar cheese. I love them plain. So feel free to get creative with your toppings. Any way you top them, they are delicious!

HOW TO MAKE CAULIFLOWER FRITTERS

These are pretty simple to make. Treat them similarly to mashed potatoes.

    1. In a large mixing bowl, mash all ingredients together with a potato masher. It can be lumpy, but the lumps should be fairly even throughout.
    2. Put a small amount of oil in a skillet (unless you are using non-stick) and cook like you would a pancake.
    3. If they start to break apart when you slide the spatula under them during cooking, they havenโ€™t cooked long enough. Let them cook a bit longer and then try flipping them again.

  1. I made these with sesame and basil today… really yummy ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’m just discovering all the wonderfulness your site has to offer, thank you!

  2. graciouspantry says:

    For me, it was about 1 head of cauliflower.

  3. graciouspantry says:

    I’m sure they could freeze, but I’m not positive because I haven’t done it. Sorry! I don’t see any reason why they can’t though.

  5. We have a Lavender spice blend from a local lavender farm here in Oregon and love it so it will go into our Cauli friiters…also like the sesame seed idea and pehaps use coconut oil instead of olive. About the freezing they should freeze well. We made some baked farm fresh Cauli w/swiss cheese and put it into single serve freezer portions last fall…tastes fine after the freeze mode. Texture is not wierd or anything.

  6. graciouspantry says:

    I just steamed it.

  7. Amber Joseph says:

    This was entirely TOO DELICIOUS!!!!!! It took me 3 tries before I realized I didn’t have the heat high enough…the fritters kept falling apart, but once I tried the last batch w/ the heat on about 8 they came out perfectly! Cooked up just like a pancake and taste soooo good!!!! I am in love!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ya, they can be touchy. But once you get it, they work fine. Glad you enjoyed them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. does the cauliflower have to be precooked? softened?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Yes, the recipe calls for cooked cauliflower.

  9. The Runner says:

    I will try them today ; )

  10. This sounds yummy! Will have to try it soon.

  11. I was wondering if I can substitute the eggs with anything? Any ideas?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Nadia – I’ve have people try wheat germ and apple sauce with some of my other fritter recipes, but I have a feeling this one may fall apart.

  12. Lynne Gill says:

    Hi Tiffany, stumbled upon your site while searching for gluten/dairy free recipes the other night.Had a HUGE cauliflower, half of which I’m using today for celeriac and cauliflower mash, and was wanting something ‘interesting’ to do with the other half. This so totally fit the bill! I grow lots of herbs and I still have fresh parley growing – real winter hasn’t hit us yet! Also have oregano and marjoram which I prefer to the tarragon. Love how you can adjust your recipes to suit your own tastes. I shall be subscribing, and pinning!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lynne – Thanks so much! I’m happy you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. just made these and they are great! had an idea while making them that you could put any pre-cooked veggie in and make hand-held “omelettes” for kiddos!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Susie – Yes!!! Great idea! ๐Ÿ˜€
