If your looking for something healthy and savory, you've got to try these cauliflower pancakes that go great with a cool dollop of low fat plain Greek yogurt on the side. Cauliflower is quickly becoming the star of many dishes which is great because it's so easy to prepare and absorbs all the flavors you add to it. The best part is that cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that is naturally high in fiber and B-vitamins.

Savory Cauliflower Pancakess

 2 whole eggscage free
 2 egg whitescage free
 2 lbs package frozen caulifloweror 1 fresh head , steamed and drained
 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
 Celtic sea salt
 fresh cracked black pepper
 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

If using frozen cauliflower, let thaw. Put in colander and squeeze out the liquid. Process eggs and onion in food processor and add cauliflower, flour, and seasonings until finely chopped; do not over process.


Wipe a non-stick frying pan with a paper towel dipped in oil and spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray. Put on low heat, wait until hot and drop batter by tablespoonfuls into pan. Brown on both sides.


Tip for frying: With each new batch, spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray and/or wipe the pan with oil occasionally. These pancakes need to be fried for a long time until they are cooked through, or they will fall apart when flipped.


Notes: You can substitute broccoli or spinach for cauliflower.
