Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160 fan/gas 4 and line a baking tray with foil. Brush with a little oil. Put the cauliflower in a steamer over boiling water and cook for around 8 mins or until tender. Allow to cool.

  2. Put the bread into a food processor and blitz to crumbs. Add the cauliflower, egg, grated cheese, chives and a little black pepper and pulse until you have a chunky consistency.

  3. Form into 8 patties. You can freeze them at this point (see tip below), or arrange them on the baking tray and cook for 20 mins until golden and starting to crisp around the edges.
