We love fried zucchini and cauliflower!
When I bread eggplant or chicken, I dip each piece into my egg mixture, then place it onto a plate of bread crumbs and cover and press the breading onto each piece.
If I were to do that for each small piece of zucchini or cauliflower, I'd be standing there for a very long time. I don't have that much time, Grace is running all over the place now and my kitchen time is limited.
Usually, if I am breading smaller items, I pour some bread crumbs into a plastic bowl with a tight fitting lid. I then take a handful of the zucchini or cauliflower and drop them into the egg mixture, stir them around making sure they are well-coated, then drop them into the bowl of bread crumbs. I put the lid on and shake it all up. After I have that handful of veggies breaded, I lay them out on a plate and start breading the next batch. I repeat those steps until I'm done the breading....then I fry them up. Mmmmm!
I'm thinking that I should save a tub or two for future use. Even oatmeal tubs would work! It's not really recycling, but at least they will be used or just one more thing before they get thrown away!
