Canapés Vegan Vegetarian

Cauliflower pancake wrapper

As much as I love cauliflower as a side dish, after a couple of days it can be a bit too much. I make these pancake wrappers ready to fill with a variety of fillings as a lunchtime snack or as a main meal with a salad. 

I make small ones or cut a large one into triangles to use as a dipper into hummus or Kale and Almond pesto.

These are delicious filled with Black Bean & Chickpea Veggie Chilli

Watch the video to see the Chilli in a cauliflower wrapper.
