Cheesy Cauliflower Green Onion Cakes

Why is it I always find myself buying a ton of vegetables and then not eating them. If your like me and happen to have a head of Cauliflower in your fridge may I suggest this recipe to spice them up. This is a great side dish with your main meal or can be made for an afternoon snack. One fritter is 1 weight watcher point.


  • 2 cups steamed cauliflower mashed
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup low fat Mozzarella
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 3 Green Onions chopped
  • 2-3 tbls cup hot water
  • salt and pepper (or any other seasoning/herbs you wish)
  • A spray or two of oil to cook the fitters.


  1. In a large bowl, combine cauliflower, flour, garlic, egg whites, grated cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
  2. Add water so that batter becomes slightly more dense than pancake batter.
  3. On medium-low heat, add 1 tsp of oil in a 10 inch skillet coating bottom of the pan. Use a cooking brush to spread out the oil if needed.
  4. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to form fritters. You can fit 4 fritters at a time.
  5. Cook until golden brown, turn and cook another few minutes. Add a bit more oil to the pan if needed.
  6. Serve with your favorite sauce and enjoy. I dipped mine in a sweet chili sauce from the asian aisle in most super markets.
