How To Make beer batter cauliflower (was mushrooms), my way

  • 1
    Heat oil. Wipe down the cauliflower with paper towel so it isn't wet. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another (beat egg before adding beer). Combine dry and wet, just until blended. Dip cauliflower into batter and place in the hot oil to fry. Let oil heat again between batches, and you can stir up the batter so it doesn't separate before dipping again. Drain fried cauliflower on paper towels, and serve hot. I like dipping mine in ranch dressing. :)
