Cauliflower Vegetable Fritters Recipes

This is an excellent way to use leftover vegetables and also a simple vegetables recipes. I like to spoon a little mustard mayonnaise sauce on top and serve the fritters as an appetizer or put them alongside grilled chicken breasts.

Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • Mustard mayonnaise Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, prepared or homemade

  • 1/4 cup sour cream, regular or light

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon style mustard

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  • 1 cup cooked cauliflower flowerets, mashed

  • 1 cup cooked mashed potatoes

  • 1 cup cooked chopped carrots, mashed

  • 2 tablespoons minced onion

  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional but recommended)

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Oil for deep frying

  1. To make the mustard mayonnaise sauce, in a small bowl beat together the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, and lemon juice. Refrigerate several hours.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the mashed cauliflower, potatoes and carrots. Stir in the onion and garlic. Beat in the eggs and then the flour that has been mixed with the baking powder. Stir in the Parsley. Season well with salt and pepper.

  3. In a deep fat fryer or deep heavy skillet, heat the oil to 375F.

  4. Drop the vegetable mixture by tablespoonfuls into the hot fat. Fry in batches until golden brown, about 2 minutes per batch. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Dust lightly with salt. Server very hot, garnished with a little of the mustard mayonnaise sauce. Pass the remaining mustard mayonnaise sauce separately.

Note: if it is necessary to fry in batches, keep warm in a 300 F oven until all are fried. Serve at once.
