  • Put your cauliflower into a food processor and pulse until it breaks up into small pieces that resemble rice.
  • Pop your cauliflower “rice” into a microwave safe dish, cover in plastic wrap and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Squeeze the moisture out of the cooked cauliflower and return to the bowl.
  • Meanwhile, add 2 tsp of olive oil to a large nonstick skillet over medium low heat. Cook the onion slowly, stirring every once in a while, until golden and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Add to the dish with the cauliflower rice. Allow to cool completely.
  • Stir in the breadcrumbs, parsley, thyme leaves, the beaten egg, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
  • Clean out the nonstick skillet and spritz with olive oil from an oil atomizer over medium high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties (about 3-4 tbsp), and pan fry on each side until golden brown.
  • Serve with Greek yogurt and applesauce on the side.
