Hey friends! I’m back with another classic family favorite, turned plant-based. This Country Fried Cauliflower is extreme vegan/vegetarian comfort food. I’m totally not advocating for you to eat this everyday, but sometimes it’s good for the soul to have an old favorite!
When I was a kid my very southern at heart father would always eat country fried steak, smothered in thick white sausage gravy. Now before my transition that was definitely up my alley whenever I went to a old school diner for breakfast or dinner. I came up with this idea after a night out, I thought it would be pretty BAD ASS to fry up a cauliflower like chicken and serve it with waffles, then I took it a step further and thought… “Country Fried Cauliflower”. Y’all, I knew I was on to something, because it wasn’t long after that night that I was back in my kitchen making this country fried cauliflower come to fruition.
I already have a pretty amazing recipe for vegan biscuits and gravy so I just knew that luscious sauce would be the perfect accompaniment to this crispy faux “steak” I was making.
Well needless to say I was definitely NOT disappointed with how this bad boy came out. It was so crispy and delicious on the outside and surprisingly didn’t taste much different from the original thing. (well besides not being a hunk of greasy meat)
I served mine with a side of simple mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans. It was so GOOD! Like, so good you guys need to make this recipe on your next cheat day good. For me, it’s a total game changer.
