Rosemary Cheddar Cauliflower Cakes

  • 5 cups steamed cauliflower
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash the cauliflower with a potato ricer or a fork. (You can also pulse in the food processor 3 times.) The mixture should be lumpy and still contain small bits of recognizable cauliflower.
  3. Add in the cheese, eggs, rosemary, salt, and black pepper. Stir until combined.
  4. Generously grease muffin cups or grease a rimmed baking sheet. Form into 1" patties or press into the muffin cups. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to rest slightly before moving to a cooling rack. Serve warm over salad or on their own.
