Makes: 6 to 8 cakes


  • 1 Cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee (or Coconut oil, melted)

  • 2 Eggs (beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt

In This Recipe


  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets. Place the florets in a food processor and pulse until they become a rice like texture. Transfer the riced cauliflower to a large microwave-safe mixing bowl and microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, until cooked through.
  2. Remove the bowl from the microwave and set aside to cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. Fry the patties in the coconut oil until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove the patties from the oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to remove any excess oil.
  4. Use your hands to form the mixture into 6 to 8 patties. Set aside.
  5. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. NOTE: You want the coconut oil to be deep enough to partially submerge the patties.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Cakes were too crumbly and fell apart while cooking. I added a lot more egg and some additional coconut flour to make them stick together better and made them only about 2 tbl each.

Recipe instructions are out of order, #3 should be #5. (although easy to figure out it is not correct!)
