Vegetables Taste Better Fried

I’m sneaking some of my gpa’s neighbor’s wireless signal to post this!

The least bland cauliflower you’ll ever have.

Cauliflower is…bland. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Fried cauliflower, on the other hand? Marvelous.

Update: the wireless signal is still spotty, so here’s the quick run-down of the recipe. I’ll reformat later :)

You need: 1 cauliflower, 2-3 large eggs, vegetable oil

Do This: Clean the cauliflower and boil it until it is fork tender. Drain off the water, and let the cauliflower cool. Once it is not too hot to touch, break (or cut) the cauliflower into bite-sized sections. Beat the eggs, and dip each cauliflower bite into the egg to coat. Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a large pan, and place a few cauliflower pieces at a time into the pan. Lightly brown each piece, making sure to flip the pieces so that each side can brown. Transfer the cooked cauliflower bites to a bowl lined in paper towel to cool and drain off excess oil. Continue to fry the remaining cauliflower bites. Serve warm — this should not be a problem, as the bowl will likely be finished before the cauliflower has a chance to cool!

    Yum! I also love roasted cauliflower with a little butter and some parmesan.

    Welcome back…my parents don’t have wireless either…and their neighbors have a password. Grrr.

    Caulflower au gratin is another good one….frying is great, baking under a heavy blanket of cheese is even greater.

    Fried cauliflower? Hm, I’m still not convinced. I once used cauliflower and pureed it to make part of a sauce. I think it can provide a balance to a strong flavor. But fried? I’m intrigued…
