I was on the search for the great side dish, to change a bit every day lunch menu ideas, leave potatoes and beans on the side, till fall arrives. Reading blog posts, I decided to take advice from my friend Tes from “Tes at Home” blog. She made wonderful Cauliflower with Basil dish. I love the way she made a batter for cauliflower. Thanks, Tes.
I had in fridge broccoli and cauliflower, so I made different version of this amazing side dish adding refreshing dip too.
So tasty, so good:)
Cauliflower and Broccoli Poppers
Ingredients, makes 5 servings
1 lb cauliflower- cut into florets
1 lb broccoli- cut into florets
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup corn flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
3/4 chilled water
Olive oil for deep frying
Combine flour, corn flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in the mixing bowl. Add water and briskly stir until just combined.
Dip cauliflower and broccoli florets one by one in the batter and deep fry until golden brown. Layer the dish with paper napkin to absorb any extra oil from fried vegetables.
I also made quick dip for the veggies
1 tablespoon light mayo
1 teaspoon organic ketchup
1 teaspoon horseradish
1/4 teaspoon mild paprika
Sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
Fresh Marjoram, mix in or for decoration
Mix all the ingredients in the bowl and serve as a dip with your favorite vegetables. Great tasting dip, refreshing.
This dish is the best when served right away, hot. It is absolutely delicious.
