I first came across this on another site, where there were 13 or more pages of raving about how the cauliflower tastes just like french fries. What can I say, I had to introduce it to Zaar! I tried it for the first time shortly after posting and while it is very good, I'm not sure it tasted exactly like french fries. I think the key may be in how much salt you add and how brown you let the cauliflower get. I will be testing this more in future!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Trim and wash the cauliflower and then cut it into slices about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. There will be lots of small pieces and several large lacy slices.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the cauliflower with the oil, salt and pepper.
  5. Spread the cauliflower evenly onto baking trays and put in the oven.
  6. Stir after about 10 minutes to get the pieces on the edge of the pan into the middle and vice versa.
  7. Stir again every 5-10 minutes until it is done, after about 20 minutes.
  8. How much you brown the cauliflower is up to you.

Emm, these didn't taste like french fries to me. At all. I cooked for 30 minutes @ 400, but these never got brown in the slightest- I don't know; maybe it's my oven. To me, these even tasted almost like raw cauliflower.
