  • 1 medium size head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tbsp cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup flour (whatever your preference)
  • 5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Coconut oil


  1. Break down the cauliflower florets and cook it either by steaming or simmering in water for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the water and while it’s still warm, chop the cauliflower into tiny pieces (or pulse in a food processor).
  3. Mix the cauliflower with the chili powder, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper.
  4. In a separate bowl beat the eggs and add to cauliflower mixture along with corn meal, flour and nutritional yeast.
  5. Heat up a pan with 2 tablespoons of oil.
  6. Add 1/4 cup of the mixture to the pan and lightly press down the fritter so that it is flattened.
  7. Cook until golden brown, approximately 3 minutes per side.

I used basil instead of the fresh cilantro bc that is what I had on hand. Added a couple dashes of Italian herb blend. My kids loved them and I didn’t tell them that they had cauliflower in them! ;p

Very diverse recipe… can add any type of spice. I am going to freeze 1/2 of the batch to eat with marinara sauce.
