I’m always looking for ways to make one meal at night. It is a struggle sometimes because Ryan and I like spicy foods and with Chase’s Geographic tongue (you’ll have to google it) I can’t always spice things the way I want to. Plus, Chase and Andrew eat first and there are times when the dish I’m making has the dreaded: “serve immediately.”
I turned on the tv when I got home from running errands yesterday to find “The Chew” on and Daphne Oz and Mario Batalli were cooking together. I’m a huge Mario fan so I thought I would delay my viewing of RHOBH. Good call for me because they were making the recipe below.
These bad boys are delicious! I froze some of them too. I’ll bet they’ll be good with pasta for the boys. Make them as patties and they could even be little sliders!
CHICKEN AND CAULIFLOWER POPPERS
1 head Cauliflower (Cut into Florets)
3 Scallions (Sliced)
3 tablespoons Parsley (Roughly Chopped)
3 cloves Garlic
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 pound Ground Chicken
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Vegetable Oil (For Frying)
Marinara Sauce (For Dipping)
1. In a food processor, combine cauliflower, scallions, parsley, garlic and soy sauce and puree until a chunky paste forms. Add in the ground chicken, salt and pepper and pulse until the mixture has evenly combined.
2. Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a medium sauté pan over medium high heat. Using a small cookie scoop or rounded tablespoon, scoop the meatballs into the pan being sure not to crowd the pan. Cook on each side for 4-5 minutes.
Serve with marinara sauce or your favorite dip.
