  • 1

    pound cauliflower (approximately 1 head)

  • 1

    pound potatoes

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 2

    eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1

    cup flour

  • cup green onions, chopped

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • 1

    teaspoon pepper

  • ¼

    cup parsley

  • ¾

    cup cheddar cheese, shredded

  • ½

    cup olive oil

  • 3

    tablespoons chives


Peel and quarter the potatoes, then shred them finely. Chop off the individual florets of the cauliflower and run them through a food processor, pulsing until they're pea-sized. In a large bowl, mix the cauliflower and potatoes together. Add the onion, eggs, flour, green onions, salt, pepper, parsley and cheese, and mix thoroughly. Heat olive oil in a flat-bottomed skillet and preheat the oven to 250º F. Form 3-inch patties from the cauliflower mixture and place them in hot oil. Cook each patty for 3-5 minutes per side, or until golden-brown and crunchy. Place each finished patty on a baking sheet, and place baking sheet in the oven to keep patties warm. Snip chives over the top of the patties, and serve them immediately with sour cream.
