Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Remove cauliflower leaves and shred an appropriate amount of cauliflower coarsely. Bonus: you can save the rest of the cauliflower for another time!
  2. Mix the shredded cauliflower with the other ingredients in a bowl. Let mixture sit for 5–10 minutes.
  3. Melt a generous amount of butter or oil on medium heat in a large skillet. The cooking process will go quicker if you plan to have room for 3–4 pancakes (about 3–4 inches each) at a time. Use the oven on low heat to keep the first batches of pancakes warm while you make the others.
  4. Place scoops of the grated cauliflower mixture in the frying pan and flatten them carefully until they measure about 3–4 inches in diameter.
  5. Fry for 4–5 minutes on each side. Adjust the heat to make sure they don’t burn. Remember — patience is a virtue — if you flip the pancakes too soon they may fall apart!

Tip!

Pair these with a fresh, leafy salad for color and crunch.

    Why do many recipes come under "Low carb" yet when I open them they are actually moderate?

  4. They are all "Low carb", we have three categories:
    * Strict
    * Moderate
    * Liberal

    Why do many recipes come under "Low carb" yet when I open them they are actually moderate?

    Why is this one moderate low carb and only 1 g per serving? Would that not be strict?

  8. I agree with Chris. According to my calculation it should be 7.64 - 3 = 4.64g net carbs.

    i do not measure anything, as long as you eat moderate that is ok for myself. Less red meat eat more fish, you dont have to follow the ingredient here as it served 4 person. you can reduce the ingrediean and season it with your own taste........ you must learn your body first which is, to which food make you bloated, increasing fat faster or reducing your fat or watrer faster. I dont like to have a fast result as it will make you gain weight more after 6 month to 1 year. i am happy my diabetis 6, and i am loosing weight ...... by changing my diet menu and no starving....... i follow a lot of diabetic menu and my own menu especially dinner.. i didnt take carb.. just fish and salad...... dinner before 8pm....

    i would like to know if we can replace eggs with anything else in this recipe. i am allergic to eggs.

    Will these freeze ok?Too many of these recipes are too time consuming for a quick breakfast.

    Max, did you try freezing these? I, too, would like to try freezing and then reheating in my toaster oven in the morning.

    how do you keep the egg from separating as the mixture sits? my last 2 were more like scrambled eggs with cauliflower!
  14. Nancy
    @Jaswinder - for binding with eggs like this recipe, you can almost always sub in flax seed mixed in hot water (makes a paste)

    Made this morning it was very good. Was almost out of butter so fried it in coconut oil. The first try stuck to pan so I just "scrambled" it all together and again it was very good. Topped with a lil parmesean cheese.

    I've made these with shredded cabbage before, and it was pretty good. You need to let the "pancake" cook almost through before you flip it. I'm trying with the cauliflower this morning.

    I made them for the first time today, and it went well. I only made two pancakes, cooked 'em in butter, and ate them with a piece of baked fish. Grating the cauliflower was really messy, so it's something to do when you have plenty of time to clean up, not something you'd do when pressed for time.
    I used one cup of cauliflower rice to one egg. The consistency was a lot like soft cornbread, and very flavorful. I might consider adding some nutritional yeast to the next batch to see if it firms the final pancake any. Grade: A-

    Has anyone tried this using leftover cooked cauliflower? I would like to use cooked cauliflower, mash it and then add eggs, etc. It seems that would be a time-saver and just a whole lot simpler!

    These are great! THank you! I made 6 fritters out the 4 servings recipe. I had 2 for breakfast, topped with swiss cheese and avocado (so yummy). I have 4 leftover for another morning with no additional cooking. I put in less onion than called for in recipe, personal preference.

    I have tried almost every dish that was given for the day. I have loved each one . I have started to prep one day after buying my groceries for the week putting them in baggies. Lable them and you have. An easy time. They are all so yummy. My husband who was always so picky loves each dish. I add a salad or greens to my dishes. I also when making pancakes, I add a pinch [1/4 teaspoon] of baking powder to them they fluff up nicely, and stick together . Sometime you need to tune the recipe a bit.
    Also just for your information. Starting my second week I've dropped 8 lbs. I'm very happy
    These 8 lbs make me feel so much lighter. I have also lost more inches then weight. Happy eating my friends. Love this diet or should say healthy way of eating.
