Lately I’ve been on a bit of a cauliflower rampage ( I think its pretty obvious), everything I want or want to make involves cauliflower. Cauliflower is just such a versatile vegetable that can easily be turned into anything with the right flavours. Like this cauliflower schnitzel its crispy on the outside with just the perfect softness on the inside that will make anyone swoon.
CAULIFLOWER SCHNITZEL – 4-5 Schnitzels
- 1 large head of cauliflower, chopped into 1/2 inch steaks
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup water
- salt and pepper
- 2 cups bread crumbs
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- lemon wedges
In a bowl mix the flour, water, salt and pepper until combined. Dip the cauliflower into the batter and breadcrumbs making sure that the entire cauliflower piece is covered in crumbs. Continue with the rest of the cauliflower.
Heat oil in a medium sized pan over low to medium heat ( you want the cauliflower to be completely cooked), add thyme sprig and let it fry for 1 minute. Remove thyme sprig. Gently lay the cauliflower into the oil. Season all the cauliflower with a good amount of salt and pepper while cooking. Fry until both sides are golden brown. Serve with the lemon wedges. The lemon brings out amazing flavour so don’t miss out on it.
