Come Hither (page 90)
1. Cut the cauliflower into bite-size pieces. Chop the parsley.
2. Whisk the whole egg with the egg whites, then add the grated cheese and parsley.
3. Heat the oil to medium-high temperature in a large skillet. When the oil comes to temperature, dip the cauliflower in the egg mixture and drain off excess; place in the hot oil and fry on all sides until light golden brown. Drain on rack covered with paper towels. Season with pepper, and serve.
To add a colorful and yummy twist to this recipe, why not replace half of the cauliflower with broccoli to make fried cauliflower and fried broccoli? This dish would be great at a flower-power party!
