Cauliflower is very nutritious, easy to work with and Surprise! Surprise! It's delicious. This is a signature recipe of my Mom's, she cooks cauliflower this way very often. When I was a kid and had a special diet, she told me that it tastes just like fried mushrooms (which I loved but wasn't allowed to eat). Since that successful introduction by my Mom I love the cauliflower and especially this one (fried). It's easy to cook and it will make a great appetizer.

Update Servings
  • 1 cauliflower head
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 5 tablespoons cooking oil
20 mins
25 mins

  • Take the cauliflower and cut off the leaves. Wash the head and put it aside. Place a saucepan (large enough to hold the head of cauliflower) filled partially with water on the stove over medium heat. As soon as the water starts boiling put your cauliflower in it and cook for 5-7 minutes. Your cauliflower should be soft, but a little bit crunchy.
  • Drain the water and let the cauliflower cool off. After it cooled off cut the cauliflower into flowerets (if they are big you can cut them in halves). Take an egg, beat it up with water and add the flour. Add salt and pepper to the egg-water-flour mix.
  • Set a frying pan on medium heat; add cooking oil. Coat the cauliflower in egg-water-flour mix and fry on each side until golden brown.
  • Your cauliflower is ready to eat. It's good warm and is also good when cold from the fridge and served with dips.
  • Enjoy!
