I remember standing in the kitchen while my mom fried cauliflower for Ma’loobeh, a rice and chicken dish. I remember it smelled so good – I couldn’t wait until the dish was one. My sister and I used to steal pieces of fried cauliflower without our mother catching us. We failed miserably, but they were too delicious to resist.
Today, I was craving fried cauliflower. But I backed away from temptation and decided to have a healthier version of those fried little goodies.
