  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup carrots diced
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • Avocado oil for cooking or oil of choice


  • Combine the water, cauliflower, carrots and peas in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for about 4 minutes, and drain well. Whilst in the colander, press down hard on the veg with a piece of paper towel, to drain excess water.
  • Transfer veg to a cutting board and chop everything finely
  • Pop the chopped veg into a large bowl; add in the flour and stir to coat. Then add in the cheese, salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, green onions, and egg and combine. It should be fairly wet and sticky
  • Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mixture to the skillet an flatten slightly. Each fritter should consist of about 1/4 cup of the mixture (I used an ice cream scoop)
  • Cook for about 4 minutes on each side (remember to flip halfway through), until nice and golden. Pop onto a plate lined with paper towel to remove any excess oil. Serve with hummus, yoghurt, lane, ketchup, or nice big salad, for something more substantial. Enjoy
