Cauliflower Croquettes Recipe
You can find the recipe in French here. Please note, I did make some minor changes to the original recipe.
Remove the green leaves and stem from the cauliflower and keep only the white part. Cook 1/2 of the cauliflower in boiling water for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a salad bowl, smash the cooked cauliflower with a fork. Add the minced onion, the breadcrumbs, the shredded comté, the shredded parmesan and the salt. Mix all ingredients.
Add the egg and mix well. Add the chive. Taste to see if you want more or less chive. This is a matter of personal preference.
Mommy tip: I set aside part of the cauliflower without the chive for my kids, as they do not like chive. I added the chive only to the part I reserved for adults.
Make about 10 croquettes with your hands, and place them on a baking pan covered with parchment paper. Wet your hands when you make the croquettes as this makes it easier to make them.
With a pastry brush, cover the croquettes with olive oil. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes or until the croquettes start turning slightly brown. Let it cool down a tiny bit, and enjoy while still warm/lukewarm.
The French “Comté” cheese can easily be found in US grocery stores. However, it usually comes non-shredded, so you have to shred it yourself. Alternatively, you can substitute the Comté with shredded swiss cheese or shredded gruyère or a mix of both .
