I love cauliflower or any veggie for that matter. I did, however, want to take the humdrum boringness out of them. Then fried cauliflower bites came to mind. As soon as I though of that, the solution was simple. Why not prepare a a flour dredge by adding some an egg, milk, paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley. Then, take some cauliflower florets dip them in and fry them in some oil. Oh, not to mention the secret sauce we made up. The outcome was simply fantastic.
