Crispy and Delicious Cauliflower Fritters: The Perfect Snack or Appetizer


Units Scale
  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 grams of grated parmesan
  • 100 grams of cubed or grated smoked cheese
  • 150 milliliters of milk
  • 23 tbsps of white spelt flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Start by preparing the cauliflower. Remove the leaves and cut it into small florets. Rinse it thoroughly under running water.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower and cook until it becomes soft. Drain it well.
  3. Use a fork to mash the cauliflower florets roughly. If you prefer a softer texture, puree it in a food processor.
  4. Transfer the mashed cauliflower to a large bowl. Add the beaten eggs, grated cheese, cubed cheese, and milk. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  5. Gradually sift in the flour, stirring the mixture well as you add it. You want to achieve a soft batter consistency but not too runny.
  6. Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan until it’s hot. Spoon the batter into the pan, creating small pancakes. Fry them for a couple of minutes on each side until they turn into a bright golden color. Set them on a tray lined with kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil.
  7. Serve the cauliflower fritters hot or cold, alongside a green salad seasoned with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon.
