Cauliflower Fritters عروك القرنبيط

Cauliflower Fritters عروك القرنبيط
This is a very delicious vegetarian recipe you can prepare as an appetizer, a side dish, or take to picnics. We usually prepare it during Lent. There are different varieties and you can add to it herbs you like and make it your own. My sister adds to it curry powder and turmeric. You could add parsley or cilantro. 

1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped
1 bunch scallions, chopped or medium onion
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper or curry powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
 Vegetable Oil for frying

Put the cauliflower and onion, or scallions in the food processor and pulse until well chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Add spices, flour and baking soda and stir. Set aside for 10 minuted.
Heat oil in a pan.  Take a tablespoon of the mixture and from a patty. Drop the patties in oil. When the edges start to brown, turn to the other side.
When cooked, remove them and put the on a wire rack lined with paper towels to drain the fat. When cool, you can freeze them, and reheat them in oven when needed.
Enjoy them with pickles.
