Crispy Cauliflower Nuggets

Author: Luke Hines Healthy Cook



2 cups of cauliflower rice

2 free-range eggs, whisked

1 tablespoon of curry spice mix

2 tablespoons of coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 cup of coconut oil for shallow frying 

Fresh lemon to serve 

Drizzle of extra virgin avocado oil to serve

Salt to season



In a bowl, combine your cauliflower rice, eggs, curry spice mix, coconut flour, baking powder & salt to season. Mix until it becomes a thick paste. If your mixture is too wet, add some more coconut flour so it holds together. If it’s too thick, add another egg. The mixture is perfect if you can roll it into small clusters.

Using your hands, roll the mixture into evenly sized, ping pong like balls. Preheat pan to medium-high and add enough coconut oil to shallow fry. 

Shallow fry your nuggets, turning every 2-3 minutes, until golden brown on the outside and soft on the inside. Remove from heat, squeeze lemon, drizzle with avocado oil and serve with aioli if desired. Yum!!
