Tender bits of cauliflower are battered and deep-fried. Great for appetizers.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons milk
- 1 cup cracker crumbs
- 4 cups oil for deep frying
Place cauliflower into a pan of lightly salted boiling water. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and cool.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk with a fork. Place cracker crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip cauliflower in the egg mixture then roll in cracker crumbs.
Fry coated cauliflower in the hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
