Description: Crispy and flavorful cauliflower fritters make for a delicious and nutritious snack or side dish. These fritters are easy to prepare, gluten-free, and packed with the goodness of cauliflower. Enjoy them on their own or pair them with your favorite dipping sauce for a tasty treat.


  • 1 medium-sized cauliflower head, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil for frying


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) to keep the fritters warm while cooking batches.
  2. Steam Cauliflower: Steam the cauliflower florets until they are tender. This can be done using a steamer basket or by boiling the cauliflower in a pot of water. Once tender, allow the cauliflower to cool slightly.
  3. Mash Cauliflower: Use a potato masher or a fork to mash the steamed cauliflower until it reaches a rice-like consistency. Remove excess moisture by placing the mashed cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel and squeezing out any water.
  4. Mix Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed cauliflower, grated Parmesan cheese, almond flour, eggs, minced garlic, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well until a uniform batter is formed.
  5. Form Fritters: Take a small portion of the batter and shape it into a fritter or patty. Repeat this process until all the batter is used.
  6. Fry the Fritters: Heat cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the cauliflower fritters until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides. This typically takes 3-4 minutes per side.
  7. Drain and Keep Warm: Once the fritters are cooked, place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Transfer them to the preheated oven to keep warm while you cook the remaining batches.
  8. Serve: Serve the cauliflower fritters hot with your favorite dipping sauce, such as tzatziki or marinara.
