I had no idea it was World Vegetarian Day, the annual kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month, till I logged onto twitter this afternoon and saw a tweet about it but so far it's been a vegetarian day. Not holding out hope for dinner as I'm heading to a Greek Festival and ummm well the Souvlaki will be calling me but what I had for lunch is a vegetarian dream.
Sooooo flippin' good and CHEAP. I scored a gorgeous cauliflower at get this... the 99¢ store of all places.
Shelly's Cauliflower Fritters
2 cups Cooked Cauliflower, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/4 cup Multigrain Pancake Mix
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 clove Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
a few twists of Black Pepper
Boil cauliflower in salted water till fork tender but not falling apart. Drain. Coarsely chop cauliflower. I snipped it with kitchen shears. Add remaining ingredients. Mix till combined. Using an ice cream scoop or a 1/4 cup measure form into patties. Slightly press down. Place in a non-stick pan that has been sprayed with Pam or a small drizzle of Olive Oil. Cook on low to medium heat till browned on one side about 5 minutes. Flip, pat down slightly and cook till browned on other side about 5 minutes. I made 8 fritters, the recipe can be halved I wanted leftovers.
Serve with Shelly's Garlicky Parmesan Yogurt Dip or Shelly's High Protein Parmesan Dip for an extra protein punch or they are also yummy with Marinara Sauce. Nom.
