  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour

  • Wash your head of cauliflower and cut into pieces. I made a variety of sizes.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the batter ingredients. It will be fairly thick.
  • Dip each piece of cauliflower into the batter until fully and evenly coated. Place onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes until the batter just hardens.

  • Remove from the oven, let cool, then enjoy! We dipped ours in Ranch dressing.
