 Unusual starter - rich in flavour and lovely in texture... Even kids love cauliflower, if it is presented this way.

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 300 g cauliflower florets
  • 1 large egg
  • 50 g corn semolina (polenta)
  • 1 medium sized onion, minced
  • 30 g mozarella cheese, shredded
  • 50 g Parmesan cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • pepper and salt to taste
  • 6 tbsp minced parsley
  • 1 tbsp minced oregano
  • virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 190ºC (375°F). Line the baking tray with baking paper and lightly grease it with olive oil.

Steam cauliflower for 3-5 minutes or until nice and soft, drain and chop with a knife or blend in the food processor together with the onion and the garlic (just a few seconds, you do not want the cauliflower too mushy).

In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower mix with mozarella and parmesan cheese, parsley and oregano and season with pepper and salt to taste. Mix with a spoon until well combined.

Spoon about 1,5 tablespoon of mixture in your hands and form into small burger.

Place on the baking tray, spray with a bit of olive oil and bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown.

Serve as a starter with a rich tomato sugo or with a spicy dip.
