  • 1 Pouch Fullgreen Riced Cauliflower & Broccoli
  • 1 pouch Fullgreen Riced Cauliflower
  • 2 tbsps all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/3 cup bacon, cooked, chopped into bits
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • Salt & black pepper, to taste

For frying:

  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • In a large saucepan over medium high heat, add the olive oil to heat up for 1 minute. 
  • Mix in the flour until smooth. Cook for 1 minute, stirring to keep from burning. 
  • Gradually pour in milk while whisking the mixture together. 
  • Stir in the shredded cheese. 
  • Let cook for 1-2 minutes, until the mixture begins to thicken. 
  • Stir in the paprika, chopped parsley, chopped bacon, the riced cauliflower packet, and the riced broccoli-cauliflower packet. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. (The mixture should be cheesy and thick.)
  • Remove from heat to cool down for 5 minutes while you line a large baking pan with parchment paper. 
  • Using a small cookie scooper, scoop about 1 tablespoon mixture per ball onto the prepared pan. Freeze for 30 minutes. 
  • In a frying pot, add enough oil until about 2-3" deep. Heat up the oil until hot. 
  • Place the flour in a small bowl, the panko breadcrumbs in another, and the whisked eggs with a splash of milk in a separate third bowl. 
  • Dip each frozen ball in the flour, then the whisked eggs, and finally in the panko breadcrumbs until well-coated. 
  • Fry in small batches until a deep golden brown. Place on a wire rack lined with paper towels to absorb excess oils. 
  • Serve the cauliflower balls with ranch or your favorite creamy dipping sauce. Enjoy!
