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

Very easy to make - I just put some cauliflower aside when making our own meal, and we already had frozen breadcrumbs in the freezer. Our granddaughter loved them, defrosted then lightly fried in hardly any oil in a non stick pan, to save putting the oven on. This recipe would be good with any vegetables, leftover or freshly cooked.

Great, easy to make and my 6 month old guzzled it up. I thought they were pretty good too! Didn't have any chives so used parsley instead.

When is best to freeze this recipe? The method says freeze before baking, but the instructions for cooking from frozen suggest that you are reheating only.

Once cooked, how long will these keep in the fridge?
