cauliflower, cheddar & chive fritters

By Eleanor at Petite Kitchen

Fritters are a fantastic way to include more vegetables in your kids diet. In this version I have used a combination of cauliflower, cheddar cheese and chives for a delicious combination. The recipe is naturally free of gluten, and you could also leave out the cheese if you would prefer them to be dairy free. They make a great easy dinner served with dipping sauce, or can even be added to school lunchboxes!


1 cup cauliflower, diced into small pieces

2 cups of cooked rice or quinoa, cooled

a large handful of finely chopped chives

a large handful of of grated cheddar

1/2 cup of rice flour

½ tsp baking soda

3 free range eggs

Sea salt & pepper

Cover the cauliflower with water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 2-3 minutes until al dent. Drain immediately, and run under cold water to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower, rice or quinoa, eggs, chives, and cheddar. Stir in the rice flour and baking soda, and mix until well combined.

Place a large fry pan over medium heat and grease the pan with a little coconut oil, butter or olive oil. Drop the batter onto the pan using a large spoon. Grill each fritter until golden brown on both sides

Makes 12-14 fritters.

*Gluten free
