    Cauliflower pancakes are a recipe for an easy and delicious dinner! When we think of pancakes, those with maple syrup spring to mind, which make for a great breakfast. But we can be versatile and creative with pancakes too: this wintry version, with cauliflower puree enriched with spices and seasoning, will also be perfect for your brunches, served with cold cuts, cheeses and morishly fresh sauces, like this yogurt one. A delicious and original idea for using vegetables, just like in the recipe for rosti and vegetable fritters. Hearty and flavorsome, these pancakes are a delicious and original idea for cooking cauliflower!
