Healthy for the Holidays: Curried Cauliflower Nuggets
Posted Nov 26 2010 12:00am
Turkey is not the only thing that can be fried! If you are frying a turkey for Christmas (please don’t burn down the house!), these can go in after the turkey is done, and will take no time at all! I love these so much that I’m making a cranberry chutney to go with them. Yes, I will be posting the recipe.
Here’s what you do. Break up your head of cauliflower into smaller florets. Rinse well. Don’t dry! Place in a bowl and sprinkle with a cup of white rice flour that has 2 teaspoons of curry powder and 1 teaspoon of salt mixed in. Toss to coat the florets well. Fry up after the turkey, or heat a deep skillet with about 2 inches of oil (grapeseed, peanut and canola are the ones with the highest smoke points). Drop a small piece of cauliflower in the oil, if it sizzles and bubbles, it’s ready! Put in a few pieces at a time. Not too many! The pieces shouldn’t touch.
When they turn golden brown, remove and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with more salt if desired.
