These Cauliflower Rice Cakes are a tasty and scrumptious patty. Enjoyed as it is with a dollop of green pea pesto on top as inside your bun for a veggie burger.

You can also garnish with sour cream or even melt some cheddar cheese over the top. It works as a delightful, quick, grab ‘n go snack. Whatever you enjoy, I suggest keeping a batch of these around for any occasion.

So, how to make Cauliflower Rice Cakes?

Steps to make Cauliflower Rice Cakes

1

Cook cauliflower

35

In a large saucepan, bring ½ cup water to a boil with cauliflower and salt. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes until cauliflower is very tender, stirring occasionally and adding more water if needed. Uncover and cook for a further 5 minutes until most of the water has evaporated.

2

Mash cauliflower

3

Using a fork or a potato masher, mash the cauliflower. (Portion should be about 1⅔ cups mashed cauliflower)

3

Mash garbanzo beans

2

In a large bowl, using a fork or a potato masher, mash the garbanzo beans.

4

Prepare cauliflower batter

5

Stir the mashed cauliflower to the mashed beans and add the rice, shallots, cilantro, Parmesan cheese, curry powder and pepper. Mix well.

5

Chill

2h

Cover mixture and chill for 1-24 hours.

6

Preheat oven and prepare baking sheet

5

Preheat oven to 425 °F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Shape cakes

Spoon 2 tablespoons cauliflower batter and shape into a round disc-cake shape, about 2½-inches.

8

Dip cakes in flour

5

In a shallow bowl of flour, dip the cakes, on both sides, to coat all over.

9

Fry cakes

10

In a large skillet, over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and add a few cakes to be cooked for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Take care when turning each cake. Repeat with remaining batter.

5

Place the peas, parsley, basil, mint, the water, Parmesan cheese, shallot, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper, if using, into a food processor. Cover and pulse just enough until desired consistency. If more water is needed, add 1 tablespoon at a time. If not serving immediately, you may store pesto in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
