4-Ingredient Cauliflower Pops (Vegan Recipe)

Just 4 ingredients? Yes! These Vegan Cauliflower Pops require only four really simple and easily accessible ingredients.

These are perfect for snacking and they're honestly so addicting too!

They also remind me of potato-based tater tots but these are of course made with really versatile cauliflower.

You'll find the full recipe below!

4-Ingredient Cauliflower Pops

Makes around 70-75 small pops, good for 2-3 people


650g cauliflower florets (from 2 medium heads) 3 gloves garlic, minced 1 tsp salt, or to taste 1/2 cup all purpose flour

Chopped basil and tomato ketchup or your favourite dipping sauce, for serving

Canola oil or other neutral oil, for frying


  1. Steam or boil the cauliflower florets until cooked through.Process until it turns into a very fine consistency, almost like mashed potato. Transfer mixture into a bowl. Add in the minced garlic, salt, and flour. Mix well.

  2. Scoop around 1/2 tbsp of the mixture. Form into small balls.

  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Once hot, add in the balls. You make need to cook them in 2-3 batches depending on the size of your pan.

  4. Cook until the balls are golden brown and crisp on all sides.

  5. Remove the balls from the pan and then place in a strainer to drain excess oil. Turn off heat once all balls are cooked.

  6. Garnish with some chopped basil, if desired. Dip in your favourite dipping sauce--I used ketchup for mine. Enjoy!

Baking option: Heat oven to 350F. I use an oven toaster with temperature settings. Place balls on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Brush the balls with some oil. Bake for 40-45 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until balls are brown on each side. Note that when baking the balls will not be evenly golden brown compared to frying.
