Keto Cauliflower Hush Puppies

These fantastic Keto cauliflower hush puppies are easy to prepare and can be an excellent snack or a side to your favorite Keto meals. These lovely Keto hush puppies are prepared with some cauliflower rice, coconut flour, cheese, herbs, and spices. We added a small amount of freshly chopped chili pepper for extra flavor, but you can omit the chili completely (or add more!). You can also add a few drops of hot sauce or a pinch of cayenne pepper. They are best when served warm and fresh, but you can store them for later. Enjoy!

How to prepare the cauliflower rice?

You can use store-bought cauliflower rice for this recipe or prepare your own rice. Cut the cauliflower into smaller florets and pulse in a food processor until a rice-like texture.

How to store Keto cauliflower hush puppies?

Store the leftovers in a large dish or a plate lightly covered with a piece of aluminum foil. Gently reheat when ready to serve.
