Cauliflower Cakes Recipe You’ll Love!

chef buck here and today we’re cooking up cauliflower cakes super tasty
healthy and they’re also beautiful
I wouldn’t say they were dateable but
these are some good-looking
cauliflower cakes yeah but look at this
cauliflower that I got grated up and I
did this with a hand grater a little
dinky do hand grater …not a fan of this
grater…if you’ve got a hand grater
that’s made for human hands it’ll be a
lot easier …I actually make some last
week and I used the food processor to
grate up the cauliflower but it made the
cauliflower too fine… it became
over-processed like a doughy mash and so
those cauliflower cakes were really
dense they were almost the density of
this which is very dense…grating the cauliflower
by hand actually made for lighter
fluffier more enthralling and
invigorating uplifting cauliflower cakes
I was very passionate but it’s a super
simple recipe we’re just gonna throw a
bunch of stuff in a pot and boom like I
said I’ve already got it sort of started
in this pot so we’re going to add
two eggs we needed a wide lens for you
to truly appreciate that so we’re just
gonna crack our eggs in here boom I’m
gonna mix our eggs up in here get it all
smashed up and whisked around and now
we’re gonna add a whole heap of
ingredients and all this stuff is finely
chopped because we want it to kind of
all meld together into a fancy-pants
looking dish and we want it to stick
together so you don’t want any huge big
gargantuan pieces I got a couple of
different colored bell peppers here
you can just use one color but use
a yellow or an orange or a red because
we’ve already got green ingredients so
having those different colors will
make your cakes a lot prettier I got a
little bit of heat here some freshly
diced jalapeno
and then I got a couple of green onions
and I’ve chopped up the bottoms here
and I’m gonna save the tops
for a garnish
and I got 2 cloves of garlic but put as
much garlic as you like in here or don’t
put any garlic you don’t have to I don’t
own stock in garlic so I’m not trying
to push it on you as you can see it’s
mostly cauliflower so cauliflower needs
help in the Flavor Department so go
ahead and be heavy on the seasoning and
use whatever kind you like I got some
black pepper I got some Italian
seasoning here a little garlic powder
some ginger powder and I got a little
bit of chili powder here and this is
turmeric use whatever kind of seasoning
you like but I do recommend that you use
turmeric because it adds a really nice
color so now we’ll get this all nice and
mixed up and those eggs are really gonna
help these cakes stick together but for
insurance we’re gonna add a little
freshly grated cheese and I just got a
little Colby jack cheese here and a
little bit of Monterey Jack and I’m
probably gonna put in
between a quarter cup and a half a cup
whatever you like but just a little
bit of cheese is gonna add some
creaminess and it’s gonna help us
solidify our cakes together a little
better and look see how that turmeric
adds such a nice color now I got a
little baking sheet here and I got
some parchment paper and you want to use
parchment paper… don’t want your
cauliflower to stick to the pan
this is like a racquetball size
but it doesn’t
stick together very well I mean this is
a very crumbly ball so it’s kind of a
slight pain in the butt make a patty out
of this so we’ll just take the ball
we’ll kind of smash it on one side and
boom kind of almost make a dome and then
we’ll smash it out and then we’ll
form it into a circle with our hands
just like this here… like Michelangelo
who was a guy I went to art school with
this is how he would have done it and it
doesn’t look like it would stick
together but once it bakes it’ll form a
nice patty and it will be nice and
solidified I went to school with another
sculptor
his name was Rodin
and later on he got in a huge tiff with
Godzilla… oh …so I got my cauliflower
ball … flat on one side ..boom..
dome-o-cauliflower …de-dome it …push it down
into a paddy circle it
circle the wagons boom boom…pattie…pattie!
just go around and clean up your patties
you know take the loose pieces and push
them into your patties you know so that
you’re not wasting any of your
cauliflower and these things are really
just shoved together on a wing and a
prayer look how pretty those are… all
ready to go …I got all the loosey-goosey
pieces kind of shoved into the patties
and if I tried to pick these up…I
couldn’t do it… they’d crumble apart
just like all the dreams I had when I
was younger… we’ll just slide them in the
oven and let them bake away
so there
we have it man look how perfect
they got a nice little bit of
color on the botto…I can go ahead
and plate them up and we can eat them
while they’re hot just serving these
cakes on a little bit of green salad
makes a nice filling meal and it’s super
easy and if you’re not doing a lot of
other things for your meal just a little
bit of salad greens and this dressing
right here adds a nice
flavor now this is just a quick sauce
I’m throwing together boom mayonnaise
mayonnaise my favorite food group that’s
right it’s a food group in the south
that’s actually quite a little bit of
mayonnaise but it’s never enough so
we’ll do that much more then I got a
little bit of lemon here so I’m going to
go ahead and peel off some of my lemon
peel here mince it up nice and fun a
little lemon zest to throw in there go
ahead and throw a whole heap of lemon
juice…crush those guts like all the
people that said they didn’t believe in
you… if you didn’t have any fresh lemon
you can take pickle juice or
jalapeno juice or any kind of
pickling solution and you can just add
a little bit of that
if you want we’re gonna go ahead and
throw a little bit of minced jalapeno in
here… go ahead and get it
mixed up …then go ahead and put your finger
in there then put your finger in your
mouth and if your face does this then
you’re alright and if it doesn’t do that
then you probably need more mayonnaise
boom so we put a little bit of sauce on
there and I like to put a little bit of
smoked paprika because it adds
a nice bit of color and we’ve got
our green onion tops that you can
sprinkle on top
that’s an awful lot of green but we can
fix that with some little sliced
cherry tomatoes …if you wanted
to you could get some sliced red pepper
and crisscross the top … look how
fantastic that looks
now if you
need to make an impressive meal for your
vegetarian hippie date this might be the
way to go and I really like it with this
sauce but you don’t have to put a sauce
on here if you don’t like mmm that’s a
really great flavor…we put so many
awesome ingredients in there give this
