Cauliflower Fries


I first sampled these Cauliflower Fries in Machene Yehudah. On a trip with my children, nieces, and nephews, we came across a woman selling Cauliflower Fries from a tiny two-person storefront.   “Do you want to try a sample?”  the woman urged. I looked around at the gaggle of kids and said, “Isn’t that a bad business move? All the kids will want to sample the fries.”   She laughed and answered me, “Everyone who tastes it orders a large portion.”   Large portion it was! Pudgy little fingers began dipping and eating their cauliflower.   My sister whispered to me, “Please don’t let my kids know they are eating a vegetable.”


For the Cauliflower Fries

1. If using frozen cauliflower, fully defrost the cauliflower and pat dry. You can microwave it for two minutes, drain and pat dry.
2. In a pot or deep fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. In a medium bowl, combine batter ingredients. Toss a few pieces of cauliflower in batter at a time. Add to hot oil and deep fry until golden. Sprinkle with lemon juice and salt. Serve with mayo dipping sauce (below) and or sweet chili sauce.
