Cauliflower Cakes with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Cauliflower Cakes

 

 

It must be the cold outside , but lately I’ve been craving comfort food almost everyday.
Not just any comfort food. Meatless comfort food with lots of vegetables and cheese.
My kids on the other hand are craving meat, meat and more meat. To satisfy their cravings and keeping few nights a week meatless I have to be very creative.
Growing up in Slovakia I used to love Fried Cauliflower with homemade Tartar Sauce. I good eat that hot or cold.
I tried to make it for my family once or twice. They would eat few pieces to make me happy, but I knew it wasn’t catching on in my meat loving testosterone filled household.
Few days ago I decided to try again, but with a different approach. I turned my beloved fried cauliflower into Cauliflower Cakes.
Can you say SUCCESS! My men loved it and asked for seconds.

STEP 2: Chop cooked cauliflower into small chunks and put it into a large bowl.

STEP 3: Add eggs, Rice Krispies, chopped parsley, grated Parmesan, crushed garlic. Mix together until well combines. Salt and pepper to taste.

STEP 4: Pour breadcrumbs into a shallow dish. Form 3″ balls from cauliflower mixture and roll them in breadcrumbs.Gently flatten them.
