Cauliflower-Apple Fritters With Mixed Greens

I’m going to preserve things brief and sweet nowadays, because I’m presently racing off to the airport to catch a flight to Florida. I’m joining a number of my splendid blogging buddies for 3 days of rest, workshops, brainstorming, networking and of path, consuming and drinking.

Cauliflower-Apple Fritters With Mixed Greens

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 1/2 cups finely diced cauliflower
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded apple (about 1 medium apple)
  • 4 scallions, white and light green parts thinly sliced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. fennel seeds, lightly crushed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
For the Salad:
  • Mixed greens
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Make the fritters. In a large bowl combine the cauliflower, apple, scallions, jalapeño, parsley, salt, fennel seeds and egg. Add the flour and stir until everything is well coated. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Warm about 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop mounds of the fritter batter into the skillet. Flatten out the mounds slightly using the bottom of the measuring cup or the back of a spatula. Let the fritters cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until brown and crisp. Then flip them and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes on the second side. If your skillet is getting dry, add a little more olive oil. Remove the fritters from the skillet and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.
  3. Make up the salad. I created a very simple salad of mixed greens and cherry tomatoes with a balsamic and olive oil dressing. You can use whatever salad ingredients and dressing you prefer.
  4. To serve, divide the salad between plates. Place 2-3 fritters on top. Enjoy immediately.
