Recipe type: Low Carb
Cuisine: Snacks
Serves: 10
  • 2 cups Cauliflower (blended to rice like consistency) or 2 cups Cauliflower Rice (uncooked)
  • ½ small Onion finely diced
  • ¼ cup Mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup Coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Almond meal
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic (or 1 tsp Fresh Herb Paste)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a pan. Add onion, garlic, and cauliflower and cook until softened. Add coconut cream and cook until mixture is creamy (you do want the cauliflower to have some texture but it should be soft). Remove from heat, pour mixture into a bowl, add, cheese, egg, salt and pepper and mix well. Refrigerate until cool. In a clean pan heat extra coconut oil. When oil is hot (mixture must sizzle when it hits the oil to ensure quick cooking and avoid fritters falling apart when turned). Toss large tsp's full of the mixture in almond meal and add to hot oil. Turn when they are browned on bottom and cook the other side until golden brown.
