Cauliflower Puffs

Even the picky eaters would love Cauliflower this way ! #Cauliflower #SideDishes



Dimitri is, and always has been a very picky eater. Vegetables, mainly .. and if it is green! no way, he will not like it, never mind eat it,  unless I come up with one heck of a twist.

This is how I got him to eat Cauliflower {since he was about 6 years old..}  - make some Puffs!  Seems kids are much more partial to a puffy dish than most other ways which one try to get some vegetables in their systems.

I will go to the extra trouble when I am in the mood, mostly though,... eat what's on your plate or have a slice of bread and butter.

Now that he is older, he suddenly prefers the Cauliflower with HOMEMADE cheese sauce - not store-bought or those little packets which you add water to.

I can actually go overboard with these puffs - I will gulp eat a few whilst making them!

This is served as a side dish to our main dish.


Cauliflower Puffs (recipe makes about 20 - 25 puffs)

source: from the cookbook SPYSKAARTE VIR ELKE SEISOEN by Annette Human

300g Cauliflower, cooked, drained and roughly chopped
1 cup Self-raising Flour
1/2 t Salt
1/2 cup Milk
1 Egg
2 TB Butter, melted
Oil for deep fry

1.) Mix the Flour and Salt - add the Cauliflower.
2.) Beat the Milk, Egg and melted Butter together in a separate bowl - add to the Cauliflower mixture and stir until combined.
3.) Drop table spoon sized batter into the Oil and fry until golden brown and crispy - remove with a slotted spoon - place on paper towel to drain.

Serve warm as is, or with a cheese sauce.

Let me know what your kids thought about it {but...sshhh ... tell them it is a salty cookie - do not mention vegetables!}
