Making vegetable fritters, pancakes or latkes often seems like a daunting undertaking because of the stove time they require. These gluten-free cauliflower fritters are baked, which makes the preparation much less involved while preserving more of the health benefits in the veggies. Add poppy seeds or black sesame seeds for a sophisticated finish to the flavor and texture. Slideshow:  More Cauliflower Recipes

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Pulse cauliflower in a food processor into slightly larger than rice-size pieces. Transfer into a large mixing bowl.

  • Add carrot, spinach, paprika, salt, pepper, flax meal, brown rice flour, sesame/poppy seeds (if using) and eggs. Mix with your hands, making sure that all the ingredients are distributed evenly. Carefully fold in feta cheese.

  • Prepare a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Using a 1/3 cup measure, scoop the fritters onto the baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Flatten each cake with the back of a spoon.

  • Serve warm or at room temperature with Greek yogurt and green salad on a side.
