Paleo Cauliflower Fritter (this was adapted from

The mixture will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for about 3 days, so you can cook 1 or more at a time
1 head of cauliflower chopped and steamed until tender
2 large eggs
Optional as not true Paleo, but I choose to use it- 1 cup vegan cheddar cheese ( I like Daiya)
1/4 tsp black pepper
Several dashes of cayenne pepper
a few dashes onion powder
Optional- a dash or two of crushed red pepper
Optional- 1 clove garlic minced
Organic unsalted butter works best, but spray olive oil or coconut oil will work too
In a medium size bowl mash the cauliflower well with a fork ( I made the mistake the first time by mashing the cauliflower in the food processor, it will not hold together, mash it well but do not make it smooth like mashed potatoes)
Add all ingredients and mix well
Heat a skillet over medium high heat, add about 1 Tbsp of butter or spray well, allow to melt
Form thin patties as seen in the picture above, place in skillet turn heat to medium
After 5 minutes, test to see if it will hold together with a large spatula, if it is not staying together, reform with the spatula and press down, cook longer and try again after about 2-3 more  minutes, you will learn the correct time, it only took me two tries
Have additional butter or oil of choice ready to go
Turn carefully with a very large spatula and if needed use a second spatula to push it onto the large spatula all the way
Re-spray skillet or add a little more butter,carefully turn, press down and reform if needed, and cook about 4 more minutes, or until it stays together well
