Beer Battered Cauliflower Wrap with Caper & Lemon Mayo - Foxford

 

Beer Battered Cauliflower Wrap With Caper & Lemon Mayo, Baby Spinach & Pickled Onion. Cauliflower is such a great ingredient and especially useful if you are trying to cut back on meat.. I hated it as a child, but I will admit roasting it has totally converted me.

Back to the cauliflower, it is a star ingredient in my eyes. It is bulky and starchy enough to make you feel fuller for longer, it’s great in curries as a replacement for meat. You can make rice from it, pizza bases the list goes on!

In this recipe, it is delicious in its own right. It would also work as a canape or finger food option served with the dipping sauce below.

Enjoy, Chef Kathleen

 

Beer Battered Cauliflower Wrap With Caper & Lemon Mayo, Baby Spinach & Pickled Onion

Just to Note:

  • Battered cauliflower will take 5 to 7 minutes to fry. The hot oil will cook the cauliflower in the same time the batter takes to turn golden and crisp. If you find your cauliflower is still too hard, it can be placed on a wire rack in the oven at 160° for an extra 5 to 10 minutes or until the cauliflower has a bite.
  • The pickled onion can be done a day in advance and can be also used in your salads and sandwiches. It’s a great addition to any dish.
