A Keto Cauliflower fritters recipe is one of my favorite and healthiest recipe I made in my kitchen.

Ingredients needed to make Keto Cauliflower Fritters

There are five important ingredients you need to cook this dish: Boiled Cauliflower, Dill, Egg, Onion, and Low Carb Flour. Furthermore, I also added salt, black pepper, and sugar. To make a low carb keto cauliflower fritters recipe, I am using a low carb flour like coconut flours or any flour that contains low carbohydrate.

One ingredient that makes my cauliflower fritters unique is that I added dill in the dish. Adding the dill is my personal choice since it provides great scent and flavor of the fritters, which will make it very delicious.

Secondly, it is important to boil the cauliflower ahead so you may not consume time. I usually boiled up to 10 minutes or until it is soft. Lastly, I used egg and flour to help stick the fritter together.

When frying the cauliflower fritters, I highly recommend you to use exttra virgin olive oil. That is because it gives nice olive taste, and it is healthier than other cooking oils. Of course, you can use any olive oils if you don’t have extra virgin olive oil.

What kind of Low Carbs Flour can you recommend?

Usually, when helping sticking the fritters, I used white flour. However, because we are talking about Keto Cauliflower Fritters, other low carbs flour I can recommend include Coconut flour, almond flour, chia seed flour, and many more others. In this recipe, I am using coconut flour for my fritters.

Instruction of cooking Cauliflower Fritters

Cooking A Keto Cauliflower fritters is simple. You just fry it in the pan, and then let it cook for a few minutes. Later, you flip it and cook it again until is brown.

The only time consuming is preparation. That is because you still have to boil the cauliflower first. After that, you smashed it like as if you are making mashed potatoes. And lastly, you mixed all the seasoning, egg, flour and cauliflower in a bowl.

Do take note that you should store in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to help stick the fritter together. That is because if you fry it directly in the pan, there is a chance it might break down, which will ruin your dish.

However, if you insist to cook the fritter right away, you can just add more flour to prevent breaking apart. Don’t worry, in this recipe I cook directly in the frying pan without keeping in the refrigerator.

For the remaining left-over, you can store into the freezer (1 month) or refrigerator (1 week) and reheat them using microwave if you like.
