Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Instead of 6 cups of cauliflower, you could substitute 3 cups cauliflower and 3 cups broccoli. Excellent both ways.
  • Editor's Note:
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

This is a "wow" on the tongue! I was pleasantly surprised. Read all reviews before starting, so I food processed yellow banana peppers and red onion in with the cauli. We only had one head of cauliflower, so I cut recipe in half. Next time I'll get another head of cauliflower! As we don't keep Italian dressing in the house I just added a mix of what might be equivalent: marjoram, sweet basil, kelp, freshly squeezed garlic, chives, parsley, tarragon, thyme, celery salt . . . but it still was lacking punch, so I added quite a bit of salt and then some paprika. Once it fried in the olive oil (with a wee bit of butter cut in), it was amazing! Thank you for this. I can see adding leftover mashed potatoes to the mix, kale, or artichoke hearts next time. It's a very flexible recipe--heat it up, mellow it out--all in your personal taste & preferences. Will stick this one in the recipe box to use again & again. And, no leftovers at all--phenomenal with a little aioli garlic mustard sauce on top, too! mmMMMmmm.

These were very yummy but had my whole family's (including the one year old baby who never has a problem with gas) stomachs in knots with gas for over 24 hours after eating them! I followed the recipe exactly, and we have never had a problem with eating cauliflower before, even in large quantities. I do not recommend giving these to small children unless you want to deal with a crying baby with a sore tummy!

These are sooooooooooo good. I added just a dash of red pepper flakes but otherwise, everything just as the recipe called for. I certainly will make these again. My hubby and I ate the entire batch. We used it as our main dish with a side salad.

Very simple and addictive! I forgot the baking powder and just used some salt, hot sauce and various dried herbs I had on hand for flavour, rather than any kind of premade dressing. It seems like the kind of recipe that it's hard to go wrong with. The texture was very nice too.

Def need to process otherwise they will fall apart and I wasn't sure if should make them thin and pat them down once in the pan, I didn't and wish I did...next time I will. Had to add more flour too but they were good will try again

This was a big hit with my family! I was looking for a new way to serve cauliflower. It was easy to make - I grated the cauliflower with my KitchenAid attachment. I did cook them in the oil, but I would be tempted to try my nonstick pancake griddle next time...

Oh, my WORD!!! These are VERY goood! Kind of addicting, too. I opted to use Canola Oil, as it is so much better than Olive oil.....if frying. :) Anyway...TRY THESE! My daughter, who isn't that fond of cauliflower, LOVED these! As for the "gassy tummy problems", haven't had any problems!

I have used many recipes off this site but this is the first time I have taken the time to comment. This recipes is a keeper. My 3 kids gobbled these up faster than I could make them, I have never went through a cauliflower so fast. Next time I think I will try adding green onion.
