Fried Cauliflower (The Olive Branch Copycat Recipe)


This fried cauliflower is my copycat version of the yummy appetizer served at The Olive Branch. Quick, easy, and delicious!

Greek Fried Cauliflower The Olive Branch Copycat RecipeI first tried fried cauliflower at one of our favorite Mediterranean dining spots~The Olive Branch. After enjoying it there as an appetizer, I decided to try my own version at home.

Although I used Greek seasoning and lemon juice, there are many other seasoning options for pan fried cauliflower. Pioneer Woman’s spicy cauliflower stir fry calls for soy sauce, fresh lime juice, and sriracha or other hot sauce. I plan to try her version next!

I’d love to hear from you if you try this! Be blessed, and stay savvy!
