Chef's Notes

Instead of 6 cups of cauliflower, you could substitute 3 cups cauliflower and 3 cups broccoli. Excellent both ways; We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.


  1. Loved this recipe! So good. I added fresh oregano, fresh onions, garlic, and fresh grated parmesan cheese, all seasons salt, fresh ground pepper in place of the Italian seasons. Topped with fresh tomatoes from my garden.
  2. So I don't like to change a recipe the first time around but I was looking at a couple recipes to use up the cauliflower in my fridge and landed on this one. I start putting ingredients together and realize I'm looking at the cauliflower mash recipe. I figured how different can they be, just - Read more ...
  3. Surprisingly delicious. So good in fact, I made a second batch right after the first bite of the first batch and I'm single. Plan to freeze some and reheat in the toaster over. I used a 12 inch skillet and placed 1 tablespoon oil spread with a brush for each batch. I made bigger fritters - Read more ...
  4. I fiddled with this a bit and really liked the result. I am only cooking for two so I used two cups of cauliflower florets instead of six. I added 1/2 cup of raw organic wheat germ, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 2 eggs, liberal amounts of dried basil, parsley, granulated garlic, minced onion, some - Read more ...
  5. This is a "wow" on the tongue! I was pleasantly surprised. Read all reviews before starting, so I food processed yellow banana peppers and red onion in with the cauli. We only had one head of cauliflower, so I cut recipe in half. Next time I'll get another head of cauliflower! As we don't keep - Read more ...
  6. Very delicious. I decided to add Parmesan Cheese. It gave it more moisture so I cooked them about 4 minutes on each side.
  7. Very simple and addictive! I forgot the baking powder and just used some salt, hot sauce and various dried herbs I had on hand for flavour, rather than any kind of premade dressing. It seems like the kind of recipe that it's hard to go wrong with. The texture was very nice too.
  8. These were very yummy but had my whole family's (including the one year old baby who never has a problem with gas) stomachs in knots with gas for over 24 hours after eating them! I followed the recipe exactly and we have never had a problem with eating cauliflower before even in large quantities. I - Read more ...
  9. These are sooooooooooo good. I added just a dash of red pepper flakes but otherwise, everything just as the recipe called for. I certainly will make these again. My hubby and I ate the entire batch. We used it as our main dish with a side salad.
