Gluten-free & paleo cauliflower patties, baked in the oven. Eat them with an arugula salad and tangy yogurt.



  • 6 cups 2-inch cauliflower florets (about 1 medium-size cauliflower head, trimmed)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup almond flour (almond meal)
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook the cauliflower in the pot until tender, about 8-10 minutes.
  2. Drain in a colander and cool under cold running water, or in an ice bath. Drain well again, shaking out any excess water.
  3. Mash the cauliflower in a large bowl with a potato masher until about pea-size (don’t puree), yielding about 2 1/2–3 cups.
  4. Add the eggs, almond flour, feta cheese, parsley, salt, black pepper and nutmeg, and mix. Refrigerate for minimum 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Using ½ cup as a measure, scoop out the batter onto the baking sheet, and press down with your hands to create 1-inch high, round patties. Leave about 1 inch space between patties.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until firm and golden brown, about 40–45 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot or at room temperature.
