Makes: as much as you can fit in your fryer OR 1/2 head cauliflower
Takes: 10 min prep + 20 min per batch frying


  • 1/2 head cauliflower, washed
  • Enough oil to deep fry in
  • Tahini


  1. Put the oil in the frying container and start to heat. 
  2. Cut the cauliflower into stemmed florets and cut big ones in half lengthwise.  Think bite size ish. 
  3. When the oil is ready, deep fry the cauliflower until golden brown and delicious.  Note: this may take longer than you expect. 
  4. Drain. 
  5. Drizzle with tahini.


For something so very very simple, it is really tasty.
