Cauliflower and Sun-Dried Tomato Breakfast Fritters
Makes 6 (serves 2)
2 tbsp chia seeds with 6 tbsp water
200g cauliflower (stems and florets)
1 tbsp tomato puree
40g sundried tomatoes, chopped
100g carrot, peeled and grated
1 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp mixed herbs
90g chickpea flour
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp tamari
Salt and black pepper
2 handfuls green salad leaves
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp coconut yoghurt
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and black pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 180Fan/200*C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Stir together the chia seeds with water and leave to rest for 10 minutes to form chia eggs.
3. Blitz the cauliflower in a food processor until a fine “rice” forms. Add to a large mixing bowl and add in all the other fritter ingredients (including the chia eggs), seasoning to taste with salt and black pepper.
4. Using a spoon, divide the mixture into 6 fritters (it will be sticky) and shape into rounds.
5. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and starting to crisp up.
6. Meanwhile, mash the avocado flesh with a fork and add in the lime juice, olive oil, a pinch of chilli flakes and some salt and black pepper.
7. Serve the fritters with the salad leaves and smashed avocado, a drizzle of coconut yoghurt and the tomatoes.
