A Potato Cake Substitute

In an effort to use what I had in the fridge and trick myself into thinking that I was eating potatoes, I made these.  Cauliflower cakes sounds like a weird name, so I’m just going to call it my Potato Sub.  They turned out pretty well though the smell that cooked cauliflower makes can infiltrate the nostrils in a slightly unpleasing way.  However, I’ll take it if I can make myself think that I’m eating potatoes. Takes a bit of an imagination, but I will get there.


1 cauliflower, cut up and steamed until easily mashed

2 eggs

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 c. panko

1/4 c. parmesan or other cheese



When the cauliflower has been steamed until it can be easily mashed (looks like mashed potatoes), combine it will eggs, sea salt, panko, parmesan or other cheese, and scallions.  Using a 1/4 c., scoop into a muffin tin or mini-muffin tin.  Bake on 350 for 12-15 minutes (possibly a little less if using a mini-muffin tin) or until golden brown on top.

To Try Next Time: Other types of cheese, possibly mix some broccoli or other veggies in to the mixture.
