We have all been there, the turn up of the nose as you present your child with a plate containing the slightest bit of veg. Our clever group member has come up with a way that you can get your kids eating veg without even knowing it. Not only that, you can switch the recipe up to suit whichever taste or flavour you are looking for.

Here’s how:


1 Large Cauliflower, use the florets and the stalk. Steamed or boiled until tender

1/2 cup of plain flour

1 heaped tsp smoked paprika

1 heaped tsp Onion granules

3 large cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp dried parsley

Salt and Pepper to season to taste



  1. Blitz the cooked cauliflower in a blender until it has the consistency of mashed potato.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  3. Take roughly 1/2 a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball, continue until all of the mixture has been used.
  4. Heat some oil in a pan and fry the pops until they are golden and starting to crisp.
  5. If desired, finish off by roasting them in the oven, this will give a slightly crisper coating.


The cauliflower pops are completely freezable. Allow them to cool, then portion them off into freezable storage and freeze until required.

Why not mix the herbs and spices up to give a different flavour, you could try curried cauliflower pops by using curry powder. BBQ or cajun spices would also work, the versatility of the pops are endless.
