Halloumi and Cauliflower Fritters

Some days you need quick dishes to cook after a long day.
These fritters do not taste like cauliflower at all, although Son No 1 still would not try them.
They are a healthy, delicious side dish or entire meal served with other salads and bread.

Whilst there was fresh home made Halloumi in the fridge I made these delicious cauliflower and halloumi fritters which were so quick to make with the aid of a food processor and nutritious too!

  •                                         Halloumi and Cauliflower Fritters

  • 1/2 chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 300 g cauliflower florets, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 350 g halloumi, chopped into 1cm squares
  • 2 Tblspn chia seeds
  • 1 Tbslpn lemon juice
  • freshly ground black pepper and a little salt
  • olive oil for shallow frying
  • Method
  • Mix lemon juice and chia seeds together and let sit a few minutes.  (This becomes a binding agent.)
  • Place onion, parsley, garlic, cauliflower and haloumi into a bowl and mix well.  Add the chia and lemon juice mixture with the eggs and whisk until it comes together. 
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over low-medium heat and drop 1/4 cup mixture in to make the fritters.  The mixture will flatten out quite quickly.  
Cook 2 minutes per side, until browned.  You may need to go back to refry the first side for 1 minute but these cook quite quickly so be careful with your timing.
  • N.B.  You can use a food processor to make the chopping and blending process quicker.
  • These can be refrigerated for 3 days or frozen when cooked.

Buon appetito, enjoy Merryn xx
