I have to say deep fried cauliflower/capers & lemon juice is so simple and I wish I had thought of it myself…but I didn’t.  We have a restaurant here in Portland that serves (ed) it.  I just looked at their menu and no longer see it listed and how sad because it is so, so good. The first thing I did was to go home and try making it myself and we have been eating it regularly ever since.  I fry this in my own rendered tallow but you may certainly use your favorite oil. I save my oil and then use it to make Southern Fried Chicken as the oil is totally clean when I finish with it. Tallow is such a stable oil that it can easily be reheated and will not break down like most other oils.  Don’t not make this because you don’t have tallow-it’s just what I use.  The best thing about this is you can fry everything but the leaves.  Yep, the core too.  In addition to the recipe below I do drizzle a little Asian Dipping Sauce on it because I pretty much always have it in the fridge but the recipe stands totally by itself.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
