Ingredients

  • oil, for greasing
  • ½ head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 200g)
  • 1 slice brown bread, ripped into chunks
  • 1 egg
  • 50g grated cheddar
  • a few chives, snipped

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 3

    Form into 8 patties. Arrange them on the baking tray and cook for 20 mins until golden and starting to crisp around the edges.

RECIPE TIPS
FREEZING
Space out on a plate and freeze, then transfer to a freezer bag. To reheat, preheat the oven to 180C/160 fan/gas 4. Pop the frozen patties on a lined baking tray and heat through for 15-18 mins until crisp and hot throughout.
