From Rachael Ray turned Paleo. Please note I did not add the greens or lemon juice to the nutrients. I also only added 1 t of olive oil for calculation purposes. From Rachael Ray turned Paleo.

Number of Servings: 4


    * 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 1/4 pounds), trimmed and chopped
    * 1/2 cup almond meal
    * 1 large egg, beaten
    * One 10-ounce bag salad greens
    * 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Steam the cauliflower until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, mash and let cool for 10 minutes. Stir in the flour and egg, season with salt and pepper and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Roll 1/4 cupfuls into balls, then flatten into patties, to make a total of 12 to 14. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry the patties until golden-brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Serve with the salad greens tossed in olive oil and the lemon juice.

    Very tasty yes but HOW did you make them into patties? Mine turned to mush, tasty mush, but still mush, lol. - 1/8/11

  • I decided to give this recipe the benefit of the doubt but, honestly, there is no way it could ever work as written. Cauliflower has too much water in it and almond flour cannot soak up liquid since it is, you know, not flour. The "fritters" turned into sputtering mush. I now have a pile of gross. - 8/1/14

  • Hi all- I too had to adjust to get them to stick. I addes 1/4 c. coconut flour, 1 more egg and some onion diced. Used coconut oil as olive oil isn't good at high temps. Served with grilled chicken dinner. Huge hit. - 7/21/13

  • I really wanted to love these, but unfortunately like another person commented they turned into mush! I could not flip them at all. Did anyone figure out why we are having this issue? Would love to make these 5 star! Used the exact ingredients. - 3/9/13

  • Loved these. I added some seasoning to the almond flour though before adding it to the wet mix. I used a bit of salt, pepper, paprika, onion flakes, and cayenne. Delicious! - 2/14/12
