I am making this thread to have at least one place to post recipes using cauliflower. I realized that they would start being buried in other threads making them hard to find.
So, here is what I had posted a few days ago but with changes that I made to simplify the preparation.Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Tots
(the original came from Parade Magazine on Christmas Day)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Break up a small, fresh cauliflower head, cutting away the large stems and place in boiling water for about
5 minutes and drain well. (You don't want it to be too soft. It should still be firm but easily pierced with a knife.) Place in a large bowl and break the florets into very small pieces with your hands or a knife. If there is any water in the bowl, drain it out. Next, add 1/2 breadcrumbs (I used wheat bran), 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1 large egg (if the head of cauliflower is large, use 2 eggs), 2 tablespoons of parsley or cilantro, and sprinkle garlic powder and pepper. Mix all this well with your hands until it's all coated. Scoop 1 tablespoon mounds of the mixture onto the baking sheet forming little "tots". Bake about
30 minutes, turning each tot over about
halfway through. Makes about
16. Best served warm
I don't use breadcrumbs because they raise blood sugar very high, so I use pure wheat bran. This actually has more nutrients and fiber. I made this on New Year's Day and everyone in the family loved them! My batch made more than 2 dozen.
