Meatless Monday #3: Cheesy cauliflower cakes

These Cauliflower cakes are quick and easy to make. And so moreish I ate four of them. I adapted the recipe from one of keyingredient.com’s recipes.

You will need:

½ head of cauliflower (I used cooked cauliflower, but you can also use raw cauliflower)

1 cup of Cheddar cheese

¼ cup of Parmesan cheese *

1 teaspoon of freshly cracked black pepper

A pinch of salt

A pinch of smoked paprika

1 free range egg

*I also added a piece of Brie I had leftover in the fridge (that was a great idea – even if I say so myself)

This is how

  1. Chop or break the cauliflower into fine pieces. If you are using raw cauliflower you will want to pop it into a food processor to chop it into a finer crumb.
  2. Place grated cheese in a large mixing bowl, add the cauliflower, egg, pepper, salt and paprika. Mix everything together until combined.
  3. Lightly grease a muffin tray with oil and spoon roughly 1 and a half tablespoons of the mixture into each hole.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes if using cooked cauliflower, and 15 minutes for raw cauliflower.

Enjoy!
