  1. Rinse well the rice and pour IT into a saucepan on which it is possible to place a basket for steaming. Add half a liter of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Divide the cauliflower into florets and place it in the basket. Lower the heat, add the rice, bay leaves then put the basket on the pot, cover and cook the florets until they are tender; the rice will absorb all the cooking liquid.

  4. Form with your well oiled hands small croquettes, roll in breadcrumbs mixed with parmesan and place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Shortly before serving, bake the croquettes au gratin in the oven at 200 ° C for 15 minutes.
