Cauliflower is one of those ingredients that if you season well can be great options for replacing meat, that is why I figured out to prepare a family home favorite Beer Battered Cauliflower Tacos inspired in the original “coliflor rebozada” or egg battered cauliflower prepared by my mom during lent season and using soybean oil for frying.

  • Pour the soybean oil in a frying pan or a soup pot, place in the stove and let the oil get hot. Drop few drops of the batter into the oil to check oil has the right temperature.
  • Fry the coated cauliflower florets one by one or up to three pieces at a time to get a golden well fried cauliflower bite. Place the fried florets in a plate covered with a paper napkin to absorb the excess oil.

I’ve gotta have some kind of meat in my taco. But this is something my 12 year old pescetarian daughter would love to try! Printing out this recipe!
