Cauliflower and Baobab Fritters

Cauliflower is one of my favourite vegetables.

I enjoy them steamed and seasoned with salt and a drop of olive oil.

My boys, on the other end, are not big fans. So over the years I have been experimenting a lot with different recipes, with the hope to change their mind about this delicious veggie.

The cauliflower and baobab fritter is the recipe that helped me turn even the fussiest eater of the family into a believer .

These cauliflower fritters can make a fantastic starter or a side for special occasions. It can also be served as a simple lunch.

You can have them as they are or with a creamy yogurt dip.

  • The consistency of the mix should be right in the middle. If it’s too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of water. If it’s too runny, adjust with 1-2 tablespoons of flour.
