Breaded cauliflower and courgette...

I love everything breaded. For example whole mushrooms, courgette, eggplant... Today my Hubby introduced me to breaded cauliflower - it was great. In Poland 'breading' is very popular. We bread our fish, pork chops, turkey breasts - almost everything. Hope you will try it yourself. It's a great accompaniment to eggs fried sunny side up or some nice piece of meat. It's also nice idea for a meat free starter with a choice of dips(tomato, sweet & sour, cream & garlic...).

How to make it...

- 1 cauliflower
- 1 courgette
- 2 eggs
- a splash of milk
- salt, pepper, sweet paprika
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2 cups dry breadcrumbs
- oil for frying

Cook the cauliflower in salted water till very al dente. Drain well and divide into small, handy 'bouquets'. Cut the courgette into 1 cm thick slices. In a bowl mix eggs, milk and spices. Put your flour into a shallow dish/plate and your breadcrumbs into another one. So - first cover your veges in flour, dip them in the egg mixture to cover completely and then into the bread crumbs. Now continue with the rest of your veges. Heat the oil (I've fried it in wok, as it was deeper than it would be in a normal pan). Fry till golden brown. Breaded veges should be nice and crispy on the outside and when you bite them - soft in the inside. Serve hot.
