These Cauliflower Fritters make a fantastic lunch or side dish. Golden and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Perfectly paired with homemade tzatziki.
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!
It was so funny when my Hubby saw these Cauliflower Fritters he thought they were – Chicken Kotletki and when he tried one, he said it does taste like chicken with some kind of vegetable mixed in. I fooled him! But, it didn’t stop him from eating several even after the truth was revealed!
