READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Malriah

Yummy bite size appetizers. People won't realize the are eating veggies. Can also be put into a casserole dish and baked for 35 minutes.

We really enjoyed these -- and ate them as kind of "vegetarian meatballs" for dinner. No one guesses there is cauliflower in them! I had guesses that were all over the map, lol. Everyone did agree that they had a great blend of savory flavors! I did find the texture slightly rubbery, but the flavors were so good it didn't matter much. Thanks, Kari!
