Parmesan Cauliflower Patties

I’ve always been a huge fan of cauliflower and my love for it grew over the years as I discovered more and more ways to prepare it. I was playing around in the kitchen and figured I would give these cauliflower patties a try, which are similar to my zucchini patties from last year. Thankfully, they turned out pretty well! Great when served over a bed of greens or as an appetizer!
