Bang Bang Cauliflower
So if you have ever had or heard of Bang Bang Shrimp, (or something else similar, I've seen it with a few names), you know how good it is or have heard other people talk about how good it is. It is one of my family's favorite foods. They really liked this recipe as well. I haven't had a lot of cauliflower before this, but it is really good fried, and definitely worth a try. This recipe wasn't really too difficult to make as long as you have a deep fryer. It would also be a good experiment to try in the future baking the cauliflower in the oven. The seasoning and sauce in this recipe are really good, and really close to the original flavor we were going for. This recipe is adapted from Thrifty Veggie Mama.
-1 head cauliflower
-2 egg whites
-3 Tbsp cornstarch
-1/2 cup bread crumbs
-1 tsp garlic powder
-salt and pepper
Sauce-1/4 cup mayo
-1/4 cup Franks Red Hot
-1 Tbs rice vinegar
-1 Tbs sugar
|Cut the cauliflower. In one bowl, but the cornstarch, in another,
the egg whites, and in a third, the breadcrumbs, garlic powder,
salt and pepper.
|Roll each piece of cauliflower in the cornstarch.
|Then the egg.
|Then the breadcrumb mixture.
|Add to the deep fryer until they look browned.
It probably took us 3-4 minutes, so experiment with the first few of yours.
|Set them on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
In the meantime, mix together all the sauce ingredients.
|Pour some sauce on top.
This was really good, my dad is not much of a cauliflower eater, but even he liked this. This could be a meal on its own, or would be a good appetizer. They were a little spicy, but the flavors are not anything too crazy, so it would be good to feed to a lot of people.
