Califlower Cakes

Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces cauliflower florets
  • 1 (10-ounce) peeled baking potato, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 large shallots, halved lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 ounces fontina cheese, shredded (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs), lightly toasted
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise (such as Hellmann’s)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Salad:

  • 4 cups baby arugula
  • 1/2 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2.  To prepare cakes, place cauliflower, potato, and shallots on a baking sheet. Drizzle 1 1/2 tablespoons oil over vegetables; toss. Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until tender, stirring once. Place cauliflower mixture in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until chopped. Scrape mixture into a bowl. Add fontina, thyme, salt,
    1/2 teaspoon pepper, and egg, stirring well.
  3. Combine panko and Parmigiano-Reggiano in a shallow dish. Using wet hands, shape cauliflower mixture into 8 (1-inch-thick) patties; dredge in panko mixture. Place patties on baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until browned, turning once.
  4. To prepare sauce, combine sour cream and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a small bowl.
