Cauliflower Croquettes

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 335
Yield: 12 patties


1 medium cauliflower (about 1 1/2 pounds) cut into flowerets
3 to 4 cups whole grain bread crumbs
1/3 cup crunchy cashew or almond butter
3/4 cup chopped scallion including green stems
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Place the flowerets on a steamer basket that is set in a pot over an inch or so of water. Bring the water to a boil, cover the pot, and steam for about 10 minutes or until very tender.
2. Transfer the cooked cauliflower to a mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher. (There should be about 21/2 cups mashed.)
3. Add 11/2 cups of the bread crumbs, the cashew butter, scallions, salt, and pepper. Mix well, using your hands if necessary. Continue adding enough bread crumbs to form a soft mixture that holds together.
4. To form the croquettes, shape the mixture into ping-pong size balls and flatten into patties with your hands. Coat both sides with bread crumbs.
5. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until brown on both sides. Serve immediately.

For a Change . . .
* Far added crunch, use bread crumbs that are made from a loaf that contains seeds like sunflower or sesame.
* To cook the cauliflower even more quickly, use a pressure cooker. Quickly bring the pressure up to high, then place the cooker under cold running water to bring the pressure down.
