These cauliflower feta mint fritters are simple to make, but definitely not lacking in flavour. They make the perfect lunch or dinner option, and are as good on their own as they are served in a wrap or sandwich. Plus, you can make the batter in advance and whip them up as needed!
I tweaked a recipe I found on Taste
- 300g cauliflower
- 1/2 cup self raising flour
- 2tsp cumin
- 1 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup fresh mint
- 150g feta
- Salt and pepper
- Cut the cauliflower into small florets
- Cook in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, until just cooked, then set aside
- Whisk together the flour, cumin, paprika and buttermilk and egg until smooth and combined
- Add the mint and crumble in the feta and mix to combine
- Add the cauliflower and then season with salt and pepper
- Heat oil in a fry pan then add batter in 1/3 cup batches into the pan, press lightly, and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes, or until golden and cooked through
- Drain on paper towel and repeat with the rest of the batter
That’s all there is to these cauliflower feta mint fritters! I love that you can mix up the batter the day before as well, so then they are even quicker to prepare for those days that you need dinner on the table in no time. They make excellent work lunches when reheated in a sandwich press too!
I recommend serving with a dollop of chutney or greek yoghurt served with a side salad for a healthy dinner option, or in a wrap for lunch on the go. I went with the chilli papaya chutney I picked up in Queensland recently and it was an excellent combo.
One of the things I love about these fritters is that they are thick and fluffy thanks to the flour, but still packed with flavour and chunks of both cauliflower and feta. Given the short list of ingredients they shouldn’t be as tasty as they are!
