Taste and flavor of cauliflower fritters
What’s more, I used honey to sweeten these cauliflower fritters. It is optional, but believe me, it creates the sweet note you need in this cauliflower dish. Overall, it has sweet and savory flavor, crunchy outside, soft inside. To my mind, parsley adds great flavor too. Moreover, it adds a little bit more color to cauliflower fritters! If you don’t have fresh parsley, you can use dried parsley, dill or thyme.
How to serve cauliflower pancakes
To my mind, these cauliflower pancakes are best to serve with thick yogurt, such as Sky or Greek yogurt. You can dip fritters in the yogurt or serve it on top, but anyway, it is a good combination to start your morning.
Moreover, you can prepare cauliflower fritters and keep them in the fridge for up to 5 days. Also you can freeze cauliflower fritters for up to 3 months, then just reheat them on a pan with some vegetable oil. However it doesn’t require much time to make these easy pancakes, so you may chop some cauliflower and store it in the fridge until you need it. Then just heat it in the pan, mix with all other ingredients in a separate bowl and cook the fritters!
