Fried Cauliflower

Serves 4


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Good grinding nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable or seed oil to fry
  • Coarse salt for sprinkling


  1. Steam or boil the florets until tender; drain and cool completely.
  2. Dissolve the yeast in the water in a medium size bowl. Add the flour, salt, nutmeg and mix well to combine; add the egg and mix to create a pancake-batter consistency
  3. Pour the oil to a depth of 2 to 3-inches in a deep pan to limit spatters. Heat the oil to 375F°.
  4. Coat the florets in the batter and fry until golden brown; this may need to be done in batches. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve hot sprinkled with coarse salt.
