Spiced Cauliflower Fritters

If you are thinking that these cauliflower fritters are going to be hard to make, think again! I swear, this recipe is super easy, cheap to make and will give you at least one serving of veggies. #winningatlife

I was doing a nutritional consult last week and we were doing some meal planning. One thing that really struck me was that a lot of the recipes were difficult. They either had a lot of needless steps, or they used way too many ingredients.

I am super lazy when it comes to cooking. I mean, I love cooking but only because it means that I can eat. And I LOVE eating! So when I look or make at a recipe, I want it to be a couple of things:

  1. Limited amount of ingredients. I live in a small isolated town, I don’t have that much choice in the ingredients that I can buy.
  2. Cheap to make. Living in a tourist town is expensive so if I can feed myself relatively cheaply, then I am happy.
  3. Makes enough for leftovers. I’m lazy, I want to make a recipe that gives me lunch as well.
  4. It’s nutritionally sound. If I eat crappy food, I’m going to feel crappy. If I’m making the effort to cook my own food, it’s going to be good for me.

Throughout my consult, I kept on coming back to my website to find simple recipes. This is because I was having such a hard time finding them on the world wide web. And this kind of annoyed me, because it really made me feel like healthy cooking wasn’t being portrayed as being as easy as it should be.

Healthy cooking can also be simple cooking. You don’t need fancy ingredients or equipment for a healthy meal. You just need a good recipe, some decent ingredients and a little bit of time to make it happen.

So this is my promise to you. I will always try and post my recipes and keep them simple. Sometimes they are going to have a couple of extra steps, but usually they are the kind that you slap together in 10 minutes.

My Spiced Cauliflower Fritters is one of those recipes. It was inspired by this recipe, but I eliminated the extra cooking time and stayed away from frying them because a) it takes too long, b) too much mess afterwards to clean up and c) too much oil, it’s expensive! In the yoghurt sauce, I use bottled lime juice in this recipe because limes are $1 each here. You don’t even have to make the yoghurt sauce, it’s just a really tasty addition to the meal.

 

I hope you find this recipe as simple and delicious as I did.

Have a great week and if you like this recipe, make sure to share it with your friends.

Instructions
Cauliflower Fritters
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the all the dry ingredients (flour and spices), then add the eggs and oil to make a thick batter.
  3. Using a cheese grater, grate all the cauliflower. I promise this is much easier than it sounds. This is from someone who hates using a cheese grater.
  4. Add the grated cauliflower to the batter and mix until everything is well combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into a well greased muffin tin. I put about a tablespoon per section because I wanted thin, crispy fritters.
  6. Put in the oven for 35 minutes.
Yoghurt Sauce
  1. Add all the ingredients into a small bowl and mix together. Done!
Putting It All Together
  1. Once the fritters cooked and cooled a bit, remove them from the muffin tin and serve with the yoghurt sauce and a green salad.
  2. For serving size, I ate about 8 of them in one sitting because mine were small but your results may vary.
