Recipe for Cauliflower Arancini Balls – a healthy, easy mid-week meal
1 large cauliflower (or 2 cups ready made cauliflower rice)
1 cup almond meal (+ 1/4 cup for sprinkling)
2 eggs, whisked
1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil spray (optional)
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tsp curry powder
Sea salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (fan-forced).
Cut cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until rice-like in texture (some grocery stores now sell pre-pulsed cauliflower rice!).
In a mixing bowl combine; cauliflower rice, almond meal, 1 tbsp oil (olive or coconut), parsley, curry powder and season generously with sea salt and pepper. Add whisked egg and mix well to combine.
Cover a small plate with 1/4 cup of almond meal. Using your hands, take a small handful of mixture and roll into balls (should make about 5-6 balls).
Spray olive oil or coconut oil spray over the top of the balls, or drizzle olive oil if not using spray.
Place the balls on a lined baking tray and bake in oven for 25 minutes or until golden.
