“Young she was and yet not so. The braids of her dark hair were touched by no frost, her white arms and clear face were flawless and smooth, and the light of stars was in her bright eyes, grey as a cloudless night; yet queenly she looked, and thought and knowledge were in her glance, as of one who has known many things that the years bring.”

Now is the hour come Riders of the Mark, sons of Eorl! Foes and fire are before you, and your homes are far behind. Yet, though you fight upon an alien field, the glory that you reap there shall be your own for ever. Oaths ye have taken: now fulfil them all, to lord and land and league of friendship!

Cauliflower & Cheese Fritters

Mmm mmm mmm. 

You know, every day I think to myself, I don’t post enough savory foods. And it’s true. I love the sweet stuff. I love the bread. Also it’s very hard to figure out savory Middle Earth foods. Meat, potatoes, meat & potato pies. Eeeeeyup. 

So anyway, here’s a vegetable. With cheese, of course; we don’t want it to be too healthy. 

Cauliflower & Cheese Fritters (printable)
serves 4 (as a side dish)

Ingredients

1 large head cauliflower 
1 cup (100 g) shredded melty cheese (such as cheddar, monterey jack, etc)
¼ cup (22 g) dry, crumbly cheese (such parmesean, feta, or homemade)
2 large eggs
1 cup (150 g) bread crumbs 
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ teaspoon dried basil
½ tsp cayenne pepper 
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
olive or canola oil

Directions

Cut cauliflower into florets and cook in boiling water until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain, then process the cauliflower in the food processor until it become the texture of rice. This can also be done using a knife.

Combine the minced cauliflower, cheeses, eggs, breadcrumbs, and seasoning.
Heat skillet to medium-high heat. Coat with oil. Form cauliflower mixture into patties about the size of your palm. 

Cook until golden brown & set, about 3-4 minutes per side.
