Cauliflower Cheese Nuggets


I have been playing with my cauliflower recipes. I love the pizza crust but it takes a bit too long sometimes, I love the mash but sometimes you want something bread like or hash brown kind of thing. So with our pork chops I wanted to try something new. Cauliflower and cheese are a match made in heaven to me so I fancied knocking this together- I really liked them and they were really filling- which kept my potato loving long suffering hubby happy!



1 head cauliflower

1/2 cup of grated cheese (could use 1 tbs nutritional yeast for dairy free)

1 clove of garlic finely chopped/minced (optional)

2 eggs (mine were kinda small)

salt and pepper

(optional extras- what I am gonna try next time- Kefir cheese, dried herbs, paprika, tsp mustard)

Place your raw cauliflower in the food processor to rice.

Put ‘rice’ into muslin bag to wring out the water. Place in a bowl.

Add garlic cheese and eggs and anything else from optional extras list and ball up and place on greaseproof paper.

Bake at 200 degrees C for 15 mins. They can be frozen here or eaten straight away.

I actually fried them off in my pork and butter fat left from the chop cooking. It added a lovely texture and flavour!! I think this will be a new favourite side!
