Cauliflower Rice Patties recipes

recipe image


  • 1 large sweet onion, diced small (approximately 1 1/4 cups diced)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (use gluten-free bread crumbs if you want patties to be gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup (packed) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups fresh, raw cauliflower florets (approximately 1-inch pieces)
  • 3/4 cup cooked garbanzo beans, drained well but not rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons granulated onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (see note)
  • 1/2 cup Skinny Mayo from my weight loss program
  • 1 tablespoon tahini


  1. In a large pan, sauté onion in oil over medium (not high) heat until onion just begins to turn translucent (about 3 minutes). Do not brown onions.
  2. Meanwhile, if making your own bread crumbs in food processor or chopping parsley in the food processor, prepare them now.
  3. Place 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, and cooked rice in food processor. Do not process yet.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, scrape sautéed onions into processor.
  5. Place pan that onions were sautéed in back on stove and add cauliflower and enough water (about 1/3 cup) to steam cauliflower. Turn heat to high and cook until cauliflower is just tender. Don’t overcook; you don’t want the cauliflower to be soft and mushy.
  6. While cauliflower is cooking, add remaining ingredients to food processor. Do not process yet.
  7. When cauliflower is tender, add it to food processor. Pulse a couple times. Remove lid and stir with a spoon. Pulse again until mixture is well chopped but not pureed. (See note in post above this recipe.)
  8. Shape mixture into patties and place onto oiled baking sheet.
  9. Bake at 350°F for 45 to 50 minutes or until well browned.For the Sauce:
  10. Combine mayo and tahini in a bowl.
  11. Whisk together until well mixed. For a thinner sauce, mix in 1 to 2 tablespoons water.


See the notes in the post above.

Makes 11 to 12 2-1/2-inch patties.
