Tips for some yummy cauliflower fritters

  • Once drained, the ideal is to eat them warm to enjoy.
  • These fritters are perfect as an aperitif but also as a main dish or accompaniment. I encourage you to present them with some sauce, a homemade mayonnaise , tomato sauce or some variation like this sauce with a spicy and refreshing touch of tabasco and peppermint.
  • Even the contrast with a sweet sauce of honey and mustard is scary, a few simple strands of house honey give that recipe a different and fun touch.
