Crispy Cauliflower Bites

This is probably the best (and most unhealthy) way to eat cauliflower. It tastes like bites of fried chicken but is completely vegetarian. These would also be delicious served over a salad, but we devoured them on their own.

Crispy Cauliflower Bites (adapted from Damn Delicious)

·         ½ cup vegetable oil
·         1 cup Panko bread crumbs
·         1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
·         1/2 T red pepper
·         1/2 T garlic powder
·         Pinch of salt & pepper
·         4 cups cauliflower florets
·         1/2 cup flour (I used whole-wheat)
·         3 large eggs, beaten
·         2 T Trader Joe’s Soyaki Sauce


1.   Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
2.   Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan, red pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl
3.   Dredge cauliflower pieces in flower, dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat.
4.   Add cauliflower to the skillet 8-10 at a time and cook until evenly golden and crispy, rotating every minute (they should crisp up in 2-3 minutes).
5.   Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
6.   Toss the fried cauliflower in Soyaki sauce and serve.
