Ingredients

  • 4 cups bite-size cauliflower florets (about half a head)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 clove garlic finely grated or pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cups dried bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream

Method

In covered steamer basket set over saucepan of boiling water, steam cauliflower until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to large bowl. Using potato masher, mash until cauliflower resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, mustard, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper. Add cauliflower, bread crumbs, corn and half of the chives; stir until well combined. Shape by 2 tbsp into twelve 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) wide patties.

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; working in batches, cook patties, flattening with spatula and turning once, until browned and heated through, about 6 minutes.

Top with sour cream and remaining chives.
