Instruc­tions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Recipe Notes

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 .
