My eldest won’t eat cauliflower or broccoli and my youngest has recently taken a disliking to it too, so I wanted to try and do a recipe where I could convince them both to eat it and so I made these yummy little bites, that to my joy were eaten by both. I have to admit to enjoying a couple of them too.
Cauliflower Cheese Bites
Makes approx 16 bites
- half a head of cauliflower
- pinch of nutmeg
- 40g of parmesan
- 60g of cheddar
- 1 egg
- black pepper
Place the cauliflower in a steamer and steam until softened.
Add to a bowl and mash with a fork until you have small grains of cauliflower. Set aside and allow to cool.
Preheat oven to 200c or 400f
Add the cheese, pinch of nutmeg and pinch of black pepper and egg and mix to evenly combine.
Grease a baking tray with some oil and then form the mixture into little bite sized shapes, place on the baking tray and then brush lightly over the top with a little more oil.
Place in the oven and bake until golden on both sides (approx 30-40 mins – you will need to carefully flip them half way through baking time).
