  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 8 Servings
  • 4.5 cups cauliflower florets (1 head)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 350.

Steam broccoli and cauliflower until tender, about 5 minutes.

Add cooked broccoli and cauliflower to a food processor and pulse until they are chopped into fine pieces.

Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk well. Add in the cooked broccoli and cauliflower, 1/2 cup of the cheese, flour, and salt and pepper. Mix well.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and use half of the remaining cheese to form small circles, like a pancake. Add 2 tablespoons of the broccoli-cauliflower mixture to each of the cheese circles, then top with remaining cheese. Place cookie sheet in oven for 12 minutes turning cakes over halfway through.
