Favorite Czech vegetarian food: Breaded cauliflower / Oblibeny cesky vegetariansky pokrm: smazeny kvetak

fried/breaded cauliflower google imageIn today’s globalized world some ‘ignorant’ soul might call this dish a vegetable tempura. But we, the experienced cauliflower-lovers know, that it is not just some kind of an appetizer. When served with a side dish – like the mashed potatoes for example – breaded (or ‘fried’) cauliflower is a delicious main course!
