Cauliflower Medallions

Makes 30 to 35 Medallions
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins


  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, florets only
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup onions, diced
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 3 TBS almond meal
  • 2 TBS organic corn meal
  • 2 TBS chia seeds
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • dried herbs, optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease two cookie sheets.
  • Fill a saucepan up with 2 to 3 inches of water, and bring it to boil. Once the water is boiled, place the cauliflower florets in the saucepan. Cook for about 5 minutes. Drain the boiled water from the saucepan and run the cauliflower under cold water.
  • Put the cauliflower, cheese, onions, and parsley in a food processor and mix until everything is finely chopped.
  • Empty the cauliflower mixture into a bowl and stir in the egg and egg white.
  • Add the almond meal, corn meal, chia seeds, salt, pepper, and any dried herbs, and fold everything into the cauliflower mixture.
  • Scoop about a tablespoon of the mixture and place it on the cookie sheet. Flatten the mixture into small medallions.
  • Once all the mixture is placed on the cookie sheets, place the sheets into the oven.
  • Bake for about 16 to 20 minutes and flip the medallions halfway through the baking.
  • Remove the medallions from the oven when they are golden brown.


1. Adapted from Skinnytaste.[br][br]2. I baked a batch of the cauliflower medallions on a cookie sheet that was lined with parchment paper. The medallions on that cookie sheet were not as brown as the ones on the greased cookie sheet.[br][br]3. I made these bites into medallion shapes because the cauliflower mixture was a bit too soft to manipulate into something else. The recipe from Skinnytaste uses panko bread crumbs instead of almond meal and corn meal. I imagine that panko would give a batter more structure, so you can form the cauliflower mix to look more like tater tots.
