Lentil Cauliflower Fritters

I've been living a life full of change and growth but at the same time, I haven't felt grounded in months. One of the biggest changes has been a change to our diet. I read this book called The Longevity Paradox that focuses on gut health, in extreme detail, and how interconnected your gut is to your overall health. With this being the main focus, I found out that many of the foods I love and eat regularly are actually leading to issues now that will worsen down the road. So the adjustment is real and the creative passion I used to have for cooking has dwindled. I'm not giving up, but this will take some time getting used to. Below is my first "good gut buddy meal" that I'm posting - more to come soon!

Recipe of the Day : Lentil Cauliflower Fritters (4 servings)

30 minute prep and cook time

1 1/2 cups chopped rice cauliflower

1 1/2 cups cooked red lentils

1 egg

1/4 red onion chopped

2 tbsp chickpea flour

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

1 tbsp garlic

1/2 tbsp Paprika

Mix cauliflower with egg, onion and salt in a mixing bowl. Put 1 tbsp olive oil and lentils in a food processor and pulse until it becomes chunky paste. Add paste into cauliflower mix with rest of seasonings. Fully incorporate. Put other 2 tbsps at the bottom of a pan and heat up oil until boils. Make patties with mixture and cook on both sides until golden brown. Cover pan if insides aren't fully cooked. Eat hot with or without dipping sauce of your choosing!
