The recipe comes from a book called Quinoa for Families by Rena Patten. Here is the gist of it (with my own slight modifications)
- Cook a medium sized cauliflower in boiling water until tender. I have always cut my cauliflower into pieces before cooking, but now that I take a closer look at the recipe, I see that she says to cook it first and then cut it into pieces.
- Drain it, then mash it up. I use my potato masher in the same pot in which I cooked it. Let it cool a little.
- Mix the mashed cauliflower with the following:
- 2-3 green onions, sliced
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- A couple tablespoons of chopped parsley (tonight I substituted about 2 teaspoons of my own dried parsley)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt and a dash of pepper
- 1/2 cup quinoa flour
- Now fry them:
- Pool oil in the bottom of a frying pan and heat it up (maybe medium high ... I start at a 7 and drop down if it seems too hot later). Drop in large spoonfuls (about a heaping 1/4 cup each) of cauliflower and flatten them out with the back of the spoon. I fit four patties in my pan at a time. When they are golden brown on one side, carefully flip them and brown the other side.
- Transfer to paper towels and repeat.
- Makes about 8-10 patties.
I think I could eat a whole head of cauliflower prepared this way, but since the scientist can inhale them as fast as I can I've never been able to. Maybe some day. Enjoy!
