I followed the instructions for the patties fairly closely. I boiled the cauliflower for 12 minutes, drained it and mashed it. I mixed the mashed cauliflower with minced onion, fresh parsley, panko bread crumbs, egg, white pepper and salt. I had trouble getting the mixture to bind, so I added more bread crumbs and egg. I then dipped the patties in more egg and dredged them in whole wheat flour before frying them in a thin layer of olive oil.
Some of the patties didn't survive the fry, but we enjoyed eating the crumbs. The combination of cauliflower and onion with a fried coating made for a very tasty meal. My husband's verdict was "Better than latkes!" and his uncle said "I had no idea cauliflower could taste good!" So, this was the winner of the dinner.
