Chloe Likes To Eat: Cauliflower Fitter Burgers

I did mentioned I've been a bit burger obsessive lately, not least with these hot smoked salmon burgers from a couple of weeks ago. These cauliflower fritter versions I have made with quinoa before to bulk up the protein content, but I also like them this way for a slightly lighter texture. I freeze these after baking so I have something easy to add to a lunchtime salad or to warm through with a bowl of soup in the cooler months.

Cauliflower fritter style burger things. Really need to come up with a better name for these, but they're a tasty add on to my lunch time salad.

Once cauliflower has cooled (very important!) pulse in a blender until it resembles rice/crumbs4. In a bowl, mix cauliflower, eggs, nut flour/breadcrumbs (I used a cup of finely ground mixed nuts), cheese, garlic, salt & pepper (be generous, cauliflower can be bland) into a bowl and mix well5. Shape the mixture into patties on a lined or greased baking tray. The number will depend on the size of your cauliflower head. Don't worry if they seem a bit wet.6. Bake at 180 degrees for approximately 20 mins (until golden-dark in colour. There's no need to turn them over. Cool on a rack if intending to freeze.
