Cauliflower Fritters with Nectarine Chutney

Ingredients 

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets and steamed (5minutes)

½ cup parmesan cheese

½ cup plain breadcrumb

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, or any other herb, finely chopped

2 teaspoons garlic powder

¼ teaspoon salt   

3 tablespoon vegetable oil - olive oil, canola oil - to fry

 

 

Directions

 

1. Crush steamed cauliflower, with a fork until this resembles rice.

2. Add parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, fresh herbs, garlic powder, salt and mix well.

3. Combine until it forms a fritter batter that holds together.

4. Use your hands to shape small fritters - you should make about 16 medium fritters with this recipe.

5. In a heated frying pan add oil in a small amount, add fritters and let cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown on each side.  

Remove and let drain on absorbent paper. Serve with chutney!
