May 25, 2023

These cauliflower bites are so addictive. Serve with a really good chilli jam, or try with squeeze of lemon and Greek yogurt. Either way they are just delicious. They can also be made either in a pan or an air fryer.


2 tbsp plant based Nuttelex

1 whole cauliflower grated (About 850g)

1 large red onion diced

3 eggs

100 g plain flour

1 pinch white pepper

1 tbsp fresh mint chopped

1 tbsp fresh dill chopped

200 g fresh sheep's milk feta cheese (mashed with a fork)

oil for frying

To Serve

chilli jam

1 tbsp fresh coriander chopped




large frypan

wooden spoon



1Place Nuttelex and the diced onions in a large frypan on medium heat, until onions soften & are lightly coloured. Next add the grated cauliflower and sauté for 2 minutes or so. Then decant mixture in a colander to drain any excess liquid & to cool down.

2In a large bowl place eggs with flour and whisk until well blended. Next add pepper plus the chopped dill and mint and mix well. Fold-in mashed feta plus the cooked onions and cauliflower. Mix well with a fork to form a batter. If batter feels runny, add a little more flour.

3On medium high heat, add enough Nuttelex to cover the base of a large non stick frypan and spoon dollops of Nuttelex for each fritter. Don't overcrowd the frypan. Turn fritters & cook until both sides are slightly golden browned, drain on absorbent paper towel.

4Serve with chilli jam and fresh coriander. Or fresh lemon and Greek yogurt.
