Cauliflower Fritters

These came out so tasty!

Usually, vegetable fritters are bland in taste, but with the following ingredients, I think you will agree on the taste. These fritters make great lunch to work or school if you are looking for a healthier option.

I’m afraid to call these completely Healthy since I will probably get a lot of grief since they do have carbs – breadcrumbs, cheese, and cream cheese. But, these are still 90 %, give or take – Healthy cauliflower!!!

Delicious vegetarian dinner alternative and super addictive!
