Default fried cauliflower?

Greetings

Me and my family have recently been following LCHF woe. My kids used to eat tons of french fries, so I was thinking: why not deep fry cauliflower as a low carb substitute. But the problem is that our usual fried cauliflower recipe uses flour (bread crumbs), where you dip the florets in beaten eggs with a few ground cumin, salt and pepper, then coat it with flour (or bread crumbs) before frying. Is there any alternative in the LCHF world for coating panee food? this would be good to also cook yummy food like beef and chicken escalope panee (breaded chicken)..

Aw -- I remember eating that cauliflower!!! Yummy!

I do not coat my cauli, but instead, toss it with olive oil and roast it in the oven! I know it is not authentic, but as the cauli gets brown and raosted-tasting, it is delicious!

You could try ground almonds, instead of flour, though.

My thought, too. Or coconut flour (if you don't mind the slightly coconut flavor).

Although, my experience is that many recipes that call for a coating don't actually need it.

You're right. I tried dipping the cauli in the egg mix, raise it and allow it to drain, then directly into the hot oil. The result is so delicious and satisfying. My kids loved it too!

From now on, I'll include deep fried cauli in my family's menu.

You can also coat it in ground spices. If I make chicken parm for the family, I coat my chicken in paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. I use that as my coating.
