• 1 cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Italian cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • olive oil

Cut cauliflower into small florettes. Parboil in salted water about 5 minutes. Make batter using rest of the ingredients. Dip cauliflower into batter and fry in about 1/2 inch of olive oil until golden brown. If the florettes are too large, split in halves for easier frying .

My mother made these.  However, the batter is a recipe I got from a TV show.  Whenever I make these my family eats them while I’m serving them and will fight over who gets the most.  They think they’re more like a dessert than a vegetable.
