  • 1 cauliflower large (or 6 cups riced cauliflower)
  • 2/3 cup almond flour blanched
  • 1/2 cup parsley chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • black pepper to taste


  • Rice cauliflower in a food processor until coarsely chopped, slightly larger than typical cauliflower rice. Using store bought riced cauliflower will work also.
  • Add the cauliflower, almond flour, parsley, egg, salt and pepper to a bowl, and mix well to combine.
  • Add 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add 2 large mounds of the cauliflower mixture.
  • Cover the skillet to allow the cauliflower fritters to solidify so they are easier to flip. Brown the cauliflower for about 5-7 minutes before flipping.
  • Allow the second size to cook to golden brown, then serve hot.


*In the video, you will see me precooking the cauliflower, and squeezing the excess moisture out of it prior to using it. I used to make them this way, but decided it's not worth it! You can use the cauliflower rice raw, and these still turn out great, even if they are slightly less crispy. You can still precook the cauliflower rice, add it to a thin dish towel, and squeeze out the excess moisture prior to using if you prefer them that way.
