I already blogged about the Vietnamese Fried chicken in another post and promised you guys part II of the adventure of Bloggerbabes cooking. Sesanne from the Lion Kitchen and I had a blast making these two recipes and we will be back with some more collabs.
So how did we come up with this one, well we both said we wanted to do something with roasted cauliflower. So that decision was made pretty fast. Next up was how can we keep it light, fresh and simple and even a little bit healthy? Well taraaa the idea of introducing some Vietnamese flavors was born.
