cheesy cauliflower fritters

These delicious, cheesy cauliflower fritters are so scrumptious, your kids won’t even know they are packed with the goodness of cauliflower.

They can be served warm or cold, although there is something so great about that cheese oozing out! These cheesy cauliflower fritters are suitable for children aged 8-9 months once they have tried eggs, wheat and dairy foods but also make a great addition to school lunchboxes for the older children in the house.

The addition of spring onion makes them a little more ‘gourmet’ but if your children are particularly fussy about green things they can certainly be left out (and gradually introduced in small amounts). In this recipe, we’re using parmesan cheese but it can also be swapped for cheddar or halloumi! Also suitable for freezing.
