Let’s face it, cauliflower isn’t the most exciting of vegetables, but this simple recipe is a great way to take the humble veggie from bland to tasty.

Filled with parsley, chives and coriander, these fritters pack a punch on the flavour front with plenty of herbs and sharp parmesan tantalising the tastebuds. 

If you’re not a coriander fan, don’t fret — you can substitute with whatever dried herb you like (try cumin) or leave it out all together. The best part is you can make this recipe with a plenty of other veggies, too. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and enjoy!
