  1. Bring water to boil in a saucepan. Add cauliflower; boil until tender, about 15 minutes. Strain cauliflower, transfer to a bowl, and mash with a fork.
  2. Stir almond flour, eggs, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into cauliflower until well-combined; form into 1/4-cup sized patties.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in a single layer until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining patties and olive oil.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can really play with this recipe. Try adding shredded cheese, shallots, roasted red pepper, etc.
  • Substitute equal parts of coconut flour and tapioca flour for the almond flour, if desired.

Won't stay together :(

Pros: it's like a healthier version of a potato pancake, it only requires a few ingredients, and it's very customizable in terms of spices. Cons: really, really dense. (I actually made a full me...
