This recipe was a real revelation for me as I always was wondering what to make with cauliflower except the most obvious recipe Blanched Cauliflower. If you are looking for a way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, this recipe is for you, too. Fritters are a perfect way to have extra vegetables during the meal. They turn out delicious, juicy and savory. Golden crunchy top perfectly goes together with a soft and tender inside.

This no-bake cauliflower fritters recipe is simple and easy to follow. My advice will be to serve them together with a sauce of your choice. Mine will be tartar sauce with lemon juice and pickles, add some chopped dill there too.
